"Chinese latkes? Why not, in this era of fusion cooking? The Tangy Chinese Dipping Sauce replaces sour cream as a garnish and more than makes up for its absence. Make a lot of these latkes -- they disappear quickly."

Step 1

With a fine grater, grate the potatoes into a medium bowl. Add the scallions.

Step 2

In another bowl, beat the egg with the cornstarch and salt, then add to the potato mixture, stirring well.

Step 3

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. When hot, drop a tablespoon of the potato mixture into the pan and flatten slightly with the back of the spoon. Continue making pancakes in this way until the pan is filled. Cook the pancakes 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels.

Step 4

Add the remaining oil and cook the rest of the potato mixture in the same manner.

Step 5

Serve hot with the Chinese Dipping Sauce on the side.

Good combination of flavors. We found the recipe for the Chinese Dipping sauce to make for this recipe. We loved the latkes with the sauce. They didn't look like we expected them to, not sure why.
