Latkes with Horseradish Cream, Apple Chutney, and Sauteed Broccoli


with Horseradish Cream, Apple Chutney, and Sauteed Broccoli


90 or so years after latkes were introduced to American cuisine by Jewish immigrants, they’re still a holiday favorite. Latkes started out way back when in Europe as ricotta pancakes; the contemporary version we know are crispy, pan-fried potato patties. We topped ours with a cranberry-apple chutney and horseradish cream. To check if your oil is hot enough, drop a piece of grated potato into it. If the potato sizzles, you’re ready to fry!

Bring to a boil over medium heat, reduce heat, and simmer until the liquid is absorbed, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Working in small handfuls of the grated potatoes, squeeze out the extra water over your sink and set the potato on paper towels. Once finished, place another paper towel on top and pat the mixture dry. Add the dried potatoes and the flour to the bowl with the onions and mayonnaise. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix well with a fork.

Form the potato mixture into 6 latkes. Heat ¼ cup vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Use a spatula to transfer the latkes into the oil and fry for 3 to 4 minutes per side (turn your heat down to medium after they’ve been cooking for a minute). Once crisp on both sides, transfer to paper towels and season with salt.

Add the broccoli to the same skillet you cooked the latkes in and saute until bright green and tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Season the broccoli with salt and pepper and divide it up between your plates. Put the latkes alongside the broccoli, and serve with the apple chutney and horseradish cream. Dig in!
