Directions:
Grate potatoes and onions, alternating 1/2 onion after every 2 potatoes, ending with whole onion. Transfer to strainer or sieve placed over a large bowl. Press out the excess moisture with a wooden spoon. Transfer the potato mixture to another bowl. Pour out all the water from the first bowl, reserving the potato starch that settles at the bottom. Add this to the grated potatoes. Stir the beaten eggs into the potato mixture. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add to the potato mixture and stir well to form batter. Heat 1/4 inch oil in large skillet over medium heat. Drop 2 tablespoons of batter into heated oil for each latke. Fry for about 2 minutes until golden brown on the first side. Turn and flatten with a spatula. Cook on the second side until golden brown. Drain on paper towel lined plate. Makes 40 3-4 inch latkes.
