Servings: 6 latkes


For the Latkes

  • 1 medium russet potato or other starchy kind, pealed
  • 1 medium parsnip pealed
  • 2 tbsp potato starch
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp green onions green tops sliced
  • 4 tbsp olive oil or any other oil to fry

For the Mayonnaise

  • 3/4 cup 200 ml olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric


For the Latkes

  • On the large holes of a box grater, grate the potato and parsnip.
  • Pile the mixture on a clean dish towel and squeeze out excess liquid. This is an essential step for cooking the perfect latkes.
  • Transfer to a bowl and mix in the potato starch, egg and salt until well blended. Finally gently mix in the green onions.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium. Carefully drop into the skillet a big tablespoon of the potato and parsnip mixture, pressing to flatten.
  • Cook until crisp and golden, about 4 minutes per side, adjusting heat as needed. Drain on paper towels and serve warm with mayonnaise.

For the Mayonnaise

  • Put all the ingredients by the order above into a tall slim cup.
  • Blitz with a stick hand blender for approx. 3 minutes or until desired consistency.
  • Serve with latkes.


For a traditional latke you can use another potato instead of the parsnip.
