Prep Time 20 min Cook Time 10 min Total Time 0:30 Serves 10



  1. Peel and grate the potatoes (you can use a food processor or grate by hand) then place in a bowl of cold water and set aside.
  2. Peel and rate the onions.
  3. Add both grated mixture to a fine mesh strainer lined with a cheese cloth if you have, and strain as much excess water out as possible.
  4. Place strained mixture into a large bowl. Mince garlic and add it to the bowl with the potato and onion.
  5. Add in the eggs, arrowroot flour/starch, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  6. Place 1/2 cup of oil into a large pan and heat the oil on medium-high heat.
  7. Once oil is hot, make patties out of the potato mixture (squeeze out even more excess liquid as you make patties) and pan-fry until brown on both sides. Should take about 3-4 minutes on each side but watch closely to avoid burning. Add more oil as needed.
  8. Serve with applesauce or sour cream and enjoy!
