Hoping to find a gluten free AND egg free latke recipe. Any suggestions? Last year's attempts turned into really oily hash browns. :(

I never include flour in latkes; My grandmother never did. I do use eggs, however. still think you can probably omit them without replacing them. The taste will be more like hashbrowns, but fried potato patties are never a bad thing.

My daughter is allergic to eggs and I am gluten free! We always follow usual directions, and use rice flour and simply omit the eggs. It makes flatter latkes, but they crisp up and taste great. They are just a bit more delicate. You can use any recipe.

Susan g.. nope I did not squeeze out any moisture (maybe I should have) Immediately mixed them with the chickpea flour and spices , the water gets soaked up by the chickpea flour . and fried them immediately else the potato tends to turn dark.

Feel free to omit the asafetida & substitute seasonings with black pepper if you're not a chili powder fan

Panfusine, questions! You didn't squeeze the vegetables. Do they give off liquid so that the chick pea flour is absorbed? How long did you let the ingredients sit after you mixed them? I love your solution. Even with traditional latkes, which I make with egg, I don't like using a grain thickener (like matzo meal, from wheat), and now we're dealing with gluten free anyway, so this is wonderful. With the raita, it looks wonderful!

Thanks so much for your help! I actually DO need dairy free as well. :) I usually sub organic rice milk for everything. My kids aren't big soy fans. Can't wait to try your suggestion! Thank you again!

Oops! Just reread...I was thinking you wanted dairy free...not egg free...just skip the egg, use the mashed potatoes as the binder

Mix your shredded potatoes with leftover mashed potatoes that you made with soy or almond milk....dust with some rice flour. Make sure your shredded potatoes have been patted dry, and the mashed potatoes are a little on the dry side as well...that is key to getting a crispy latke. (also a hot pan, hot oil)
