By PutoPinoy on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 At Tuesday, August 25, 2009

  • 2 lg. unpeeled potatoes, boiled
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • Oil
  • 1 tsp. minced chives
  • 2 tbsp. bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sesame seeds
  • Caramelized Applesauce (see recipe)

Peel potatoes and mash until smooth. Add garlic, 1 tablespoon oil, chives and bread crumbs. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix well. Shape into thin latkes, using about 2 tablespoons batter per latke. Pour about 1/3 cup sesame seeds onto flat plate and press both sides of latkes into seeds to coat.

In large, heavy skillet, heat 1/4 inch oil to 375 degrees. Carefully plate latkes in hot oil and fry on both sides until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with Caramelized Applesauce. Yields 2 to 3 dozen latkes.
