Directions

  1. If making homemade, prepare the applesauce as outlined here. In a medium bowl combine the potatoes, carrots, onion, jalapeño, flour, cumin, salt, turmeric, and eggs. Mix well.
  2. Heat the oil in wide skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, pour a heaping tablespoon of the batter into the skillet. Flatten with the back of the spoon for a 3-inch latke. Cook as many latkes in the pan as you can without over crowding.
  3. Cook until golden and crispy on the bottom, about 3-5 minutes, then flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.
  4. Serve latkes warm with applesauce and Greek yogurt.

Chef Tips

If not serving immediately, keep the cooked latkes warm and crispy in a preheated 200-degree oven. They can also be reheated in an oven at a later date.
