Recipe for delicious potato pancakes with corn flour:

Ingredients:

                  
  • 2.2 lbs of starchy potatoes (type C),
  • 2 tablespoons of corn flour,
  • 1 can of corn,
  • 2 eggs,
  • 2 cloves of garlic,
  • 1 onion,
  • Salt and pepper to taste or a blend of potato spices,
  • Oil for frying.

Preparation:

  1. Prepare the mixture: Begin by peeling and grating the potatoes finely. Incorporate the corn flour, drained corn, eggs, pressed garlic, chopped onion, and your choice of spices. Mix thoroughly and let the mixture rest for 10 minutes to allow the potatoes to exude their moisture.
  2. Frying: Warm the oil in a frying pan. Ladle dollops of the mixture into the pan and gently press to flatten. Cook the pancakes until they are golden brown on both sides.
  3. Enjoy the finished pancakes with a dollop of sour cream, dill sauce, or garlic sauce, and pair it with your preferred slaw, such as a leek and carrot mix.
