Simple to make potato cakes, which taste best made of new potatoes and served with cottage cheese.
It was my grandmother who made the best potato cakes. As with everything, potatoes in that time tasted better than those from now, also, home-made cottage cheese is irreplaceable.
Today I would like to share with you a recipe for the potato cakes I make at home.
Personally I like it the most when the cakes are well seasoned and crispy. This effect can be achieved by adding onion to the potato mixture. I use oil for frying and not lard to avoid the potato cakes being soaked in grease.
If you decide to try this recipe, I encourage you to share photos in the Comment section.
Bon Appetit 🙂
Ingredients for cakes:
Peel the potatoes and grate them on the small or medium grating slot. Add finely ground onion, egg, potato flour, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly. Heat up oil in a pan. Put the potato mixture on the hot oil and fry on medium heat until golden brown.
Crush the cottage cheese crumbs with a fork, add cream, salt and finely chopped chives. Mix thoroughly.
Serve the cakes while still warm with the cottage cheese.
Potato cakes can be served with cottage cheese, cream, sugar, goulash, mushroom sauce. There are many options. For those who choose sugar, I would advise not to add neither onion nor pepper.
