Potato Patties Recipe

This is a great meatless recipe for using up the leftover potatoes in your pantry.

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 20 mins

Cook Time: 20 mins


  • 3 russet potatoes peeled and quartered
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped carrots
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped scallions
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tbsp plain flour sifted
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp sour cream to serve


  1. Place potatoes in a pot of water with 1/2 tsp salt added. Bring to boil, then simmer potatoes for 12 minutes, or until a fork can pierce the potato easily.
  2. Drain the potatoes and mash them using a potato ricer. Combine potato with the rest of the ingredients except vegetable oil in a mixing bowl. Mould 1 heaped tablespoon of potato mixture into a ball and gently flatten it to make a patty. Repeat until all the potato mixture is used up.
  3. Heat frying pan with vegetable oil. Cook potato patties in batches, 2-3 minutes on each side until lightly golden brown, then turn over with a spatula to cook the other side. Drain the excess oil on tempura papers or kitchen paper towels and serve with some sour cream.

    I’m thinking about making this (reminds me of latkas) as a main dish & was wondering what do you recommend I should eat this with?
    Seems like eating potato alone won’t fill you up.
