Potato and Zucchini Latkes
Zucchini - 1 small
Red Potato - 1 big or 2 small ones
Eggs - 2
Cayenne Pepper - 1/4 tsp
Garlic Cloves - 5, grated
Corn meal - 1 tbsp
Brown Rice Powder - 1 tbsp
Peanut oil for frying the pancakes
Grate the potato and the zucchini. Add a little salt and leave aside for 10 minutes. Then place them in a clean kitchen towel and wring well to remove all moisture.
Place the grated potato zucchini mixture in a bowl. Add eggs, salt, pepper, cayenne, grated garlic, corn meal and brown rice powder. Mix well.
Heat a tbsp of oil in a cast iron skillet. Add 2 tbsp of the pancake mixture. Flatten with the back of the spatula to make a small round shaped pancake. Cook on medium low heat till the bottom browns. Flip and cook till the other side also browns. Serve hot with your favourite chutney.
