If you have made pancakes before then you will find his recipe easy to make as it is similar to making it. You can make patties with your bare hands with the mashed potatoes with some stirring and frying so let’s see some detailed instruction on how to make potato pancakes below:
First of all I like to start with making pancake batter. SO I take out some chives, onions, garlic, eggs, mashed potatoes and mix them together. Then I add some pepper and salt. One thing I keep in my head is that I wont get the usual batter with perfect smoothness as this mixture is going to be different so don’t panic if you find it more thick and chunky.
I then make some patties by adding a mixture of about ¼ cup in a patty. Then I go on to put it on a flat plate and keep on making such patties until the batter is completely used.
Then I take out a pan and add some oil to fry these patties. I put on some medium level heat and add three to four patties at a time so that they don’t stick to each other and leave them for three minutes to cook. I then switch sides when the patties start turning golden brown in color. Make sure you flip slowly as the patties can break apart.
Add some finishing of chives and other toppings that you like.
