Placki ziemniaczane

With natural yogurt and dill
Placki ziemniaczane ("potato pancakes") are a slightly different version of hash browns...
In Poland, placki ziemniaczane make a good, cheap and comforting meal.
Serve them with sugar, sour cream, cottage cheese or natural yogurt. Add some dill, radishes or spring onion.

Placki ziemniaczane:
6 medium potatoes, grated or cut into small pieces if using a food processor
Half onion, chopped
Salt & pepper to taste
2-3 Tbsp flour
Oil for frying

Mix all ingredients (or blend them in a food processor) and heat oil in a frying pan. Place full tablespoons of potato mixture in a pan. Flatten with spatula and fry for 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with granulated sugar and serve warm. You can add other toppings (mentioned above) if you wish.
