6 potatoes, grated by hand and drained
(grandma says is you get your knuckles it just means you really put yourself into your cooking-LOL) if you have a better way, go for it!
1 small onion grated; pinch of baking soda (to keep taters white)
2 eggs; 2 TBS flour or matzo meal; 1 tsp salt; 1/4 tsp baking powder; mix well. Drop by TBS into at least 1/4″ hot oil (not butter–it’s Hanukkah). Fry until brown on both sides. We serve with applesauce and/or sour cream.

(This recipe given to me by my friend, Jen Coop, who said, “Now, Grandma is still alive, so don’t tell her i gave this to you 😉 Grandma’s card says that when you make them, some people will behave like they haven’t eaten in years.” And when you are cooking for people who enjoy them so much you won’t mind grating potatoes all day long. ho ho!” she says 🙂
