Potato pancakes – must give it a try

Potatoes are my favourite.  Who have not heard of French Fries?  Dipped in tomato sauce French Fries taste great.  I learnt about this combination from a friend I was spending an evening with on my holiday in the US.  The only thing I did not like  was there was just one dipper and everyone was using it.  Imagine licking your fingers and then using them to dip the French Fries in that common dipper Ugh………….!!!

Then there are patties where the patties stay in place only because they are covered with potato  mash.   We also fry potato slices dipped in gram flour paste  to which ajwan, salt and chili powder is added.

Any pies that you attempt to make  are always covered with a layer of potato mash. I made Shepherds Pie the other day and that had a layer of potato mash over it.

When I read the recipe for potato pancakes I got interested.

That could be a perfect breakfast item.  You just boil the potatoes mash them add onions cut fine, an egg well beaten – as  you know eggs are used for binding anything.  Add a bit of flour and it also suggests that you can add anything else as long as you have no issues while frying your pancakes.  Do not forget your salt as anything without salt will be tasteless no matter what you pack you recipe with.   I forgot to add salt the other day in my pork dish.  I had to take it back to the gas and heat it up again.

I have not tried making potato pancakes  yet but that will be my next breakfast item. The very look of it   convinced me that potato pancakes will be added to my breakfast menu
