Photo: Emily Kinni Additional Time: 60 mins Total Time: 60 mins Yield: 20 latkes Jump to Nutrition Facts Ingredients 1 large sweet potato, peeled and grated 1 large russet potato, peeled and grated 1 medium yellow onion, grated 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 3 tablespooons all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon Kosher salt, plus more to finish 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper vegetable oil, for frying 1/2 cup sour cream 2 tablespoons finely chopped Italian flat leaf parsley 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives Directions Line a fine mesh strainer with a tea towel and add grated potatoes (sweet and russet) and onion. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible; discard. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and add the eggs, flour, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 pepper. Use you hand to mix just until the mixture holds together, adding more flour if necessary. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of a large non-stick skillet. Heat until the oil is hot, but not smoking. Working in batches, measure out 11/2-tablespoon portions of the latke mixture, flatten slightly and add to the skillet, spacing the latkes 1 inch apart. Cook until the latkes are crisp and brown around the edges, 4 to 6 minutes; flip and cook, until crisp and deep golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes more. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate, sprinkle with additional salt and repeat with the remaining latke mixture, adding few tablespoons of oil between batches. Meanwhile, whisk together the sour cream, parsley, chives, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Serve the latkes with the herbed sour cream.
