The following recipe my wife improvised quickly after the little one dug out a bag of Jarisha and said he wanted that. It is true that you usually make Cuba with Jarisha - but the latkes that came out were no less delicious and served as a wonderful dinner for the whole family!
- Prep Time :40 minutes
- Cook Time :10 minutes
- Soak the Jarisha in boiling water for about an hour - at least. Wash and drain.
- Chop onion and fry until browned (not burned).
- Mix (with hands) the Jarisha with fried onions, raisins, (walnuts), eggs, sugar, cinnamon and flour. It is important not to add all the flour at once, but every once in a while so it does not get too thick.
- Altogether, form a dense pancake and fry on both sides in a hot pan with a little oil until the latkes get a beautiful tan color.
Sprinkle with sugar and serve.
You may also want to serve with sour cream or white cream with fresh vegetables.
