Preparation / Directions:
Grate potatoes with grater or food processor. Add chives, parsley, salt and pepper. Do not soak potatoes or starch will be lost. In a large skillet, heat a film of oil on high heat.
For each crisp, drop about 1 tablespoon of potato mixture into oil and flatten. Fry on one side until crisp, about 2 minutes. Repeat on second side. Drain on paper towel.
Repeat until all mixtures is used up. At serving time, either reheat cakes in 375F (190C) oven for 5 minutes or serve cold.
Garnish with sour cream, caviar and a sprinkling of chives. Top these crisp potato pancakes with sour cream and caviar, or try these alternatives: Sour cream and apple sauce, sour cream and smoked salmon, olive paste or dab of anchovy paste.
