Perfect for the holidays! There are other kinds of latkes besides plain potato. We like this spicy version. —Loulies

In This Recipe
In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper, curry powder, cumin, salt and black pepper. Add eggs and milk to the dry ingredients to make a stiff batter. Add grated potatoes and mix (the batter should be moist but not runny; if too stiff, add a little more milk.).
Heat 2 to 3 tablespoons oil in a large frying for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Drop two heaping tablespoons of the potato batter into the hot pan and flatten down with the back of a spatula. Fry 4 to 5 pancakes at a time. Continue to cook over medium-high heat for several minutes until all of the pancakes are golden on each side. Place fried pancake onto a plate covered with a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream.
