This a a great recipe that is easy to make and to vary. Similar to latkes but with a different taste. Can be a snack by itself, served with chutney or even ketchup, a part of a brunch, or a side dish. The hot tip is soaking the potatoes first in water first. This removes some of the potato starch first and the potatoes cook faster and crispier. This is true for oven fries as well.
