Who doesn't love latkes? I mean fried, crispy, shredded potatoes. Yes, please. Latkes are a delicious dish that I learned to love after moving to the US. As I learned to cook, I would often try to make this dish and try different recipes. Last year, I felt that I had finally perfected the recipe that I liked best. Everyone in the family enjoyed them too. I decided then, that next time around, I would want to add my Indo-Fijian flavors into latkes. It is not that big of a stretch as there are many fried potato dishes in our cuisine. Well, many fried dishes period. Well, maybe I just like fried food. Ahem. After marriage, I discovered that my husband also loved latkes and it was an important dish for his heritage too. He often makes his latke recipe for our Sunday brunches. Anyways, at long last, I was able to try this twist on latkes last week and the results are super tasty! These latkes are crispy, savory, tender, spicy, and so flavorful. In addition, they are vegan and gluten-free as I replaced the egg and/or flour component with chickpea flour.

The recipe is very easy and follows the traditional steps to make latkes. First prep the potatoes. After they are grated, soak them in cold water for a bit. Then drain and squeeze out excess water. Then the rest of the ingredients are mixed in. Form them into little patties and fry gently in hot oil on each side until golden brown. Drain and serve!

That's all it takes to make these delicious latkes. Check out the full recipe with measurements below. I hope you try them soon!
