Ingredients

  • 1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, peeled
  • 1 small onion
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup chopped stemmed kale
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour or matzo meal
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Vegetable oil or rendered chicken or duck fat, for frying
  • Sour cream, for serving

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with paper towels.

Step 2

Grate the potatoes on the large holes of a box grater and transfer to a large colander set over a bowl. Grate the onion and add to the colander. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Firmly squeeze the mixture with your hands to extract as much liquid as possible; blot dry on paper towels if especially wet. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add the kale, chives and dill and toss to combine. Add the flour and egg and stir until thoroughly combined.

Step 3

Working with 1/4 cup of the mixture at a time, form tightly packed pancakes about 2 inches wide and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.

Step 4

Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Working in batches, fry the pancakes until golden brown and crisp, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet and put in the oven to keep warm while cooking the remaining pancakes.

Step 5

Serve with sour cream.
