About the Recipe
Potato pancakes are associated with the cuisines of many European counrties. In Czech Republic named bramborák or cmunda, in Slovaki they are know as zemiakové placky and in Jewish culture they are called latka. They do defer from each another but they have one and the same main ingredient - potatoes. One of the most versatile vegetables in Polish cuisine, in my opinion!
Potatoes are a great source of vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, vitamins C and B6
Those pancakes that I make have two different flavors, and few other additions, however this time I kept them strictly vegetarian. The first one - my savory potato pancakes, are made with some leek, onion and chilies, I kept them simple but spicy. The second sweetened (not sweet) potato pancakes, are create with some zucchini and carrots, and garnished with some sour cream and maple syrup sauce. Here, I hoped that they will be a great change for my kids- they love pancakes (but which kids don't). The main dietary components in potatoes are carbs but they contain small amounts of high-quality protein.
