Navratri Potato Pancakes | Easy Vegan Latkes

This potato pancake recipe is inspired by Latkes. Latkes are shallow-fried pancakes. They are traditionally cooked on Hanukkah. It is made with grated potato, flour, eggs, onion and salt. With Navratri just around the corner, I thought of making a vrat recipe. So this is the vrat/fasting version of Latkes.

The recipe is quite simple. You will need a few potatoes, water chestnut flour/singhara atta, cumin seeds, black pepper, ginger, fresh coriander leaves, green chillies and rock salt. This is an instant pancake recipe. So just mix all the ingredients together and start frying them in a pan.

As this is a Navratri recipe, so I have used ghee/clarified butter for frying the pancakes. But for the vegans, just replace ghee with coconut oil.
