Potatoes, sweet potatoes, and zucchini give these latkes their colorful look. To make Two-Tone Latkes instead, simply leave out the zucchini.

2 large potatoes
1 large sweet potato
1 medium zucchini
1 medium onion
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1 shake of pepper
1/4 cup matzah meal
  1. Peel potatoes. Grate potatoes and zucchini and set in colander to drain while you grate the onion.
  2. Press as much liquid out of potato mixture as you can and add to beaten eggs.
  3. Add salt, pepper and matzah meal (if needed, add a little more matzah meal until you have a good consistency).
  4. Mix well. Drop batter in hot oil. Brown on both sides and drain on absorbent paper.
