Fried Potato Patties
(Bulviu Maltiniai)
What You Need:
  • 3 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 egg
  • ½ to ¾ cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter for frying

  • How To Cook:
    1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a 6- to 8-quart pot and drop in the potatoes. Boil briskly, uncovered, until they are soft enough to be easily pierced with a fork. Drain them thoroughly in a large sieve and force them through a ricer or mash them in a bowl with a fork.

    2. Beat in the egg, ½ cup of flour and the salt, and continue to beat vigorously until the mixture is smooth and dense enough to hold its shape almost solidly in a spoon. (If the mixture seems too fluid, beat in the remaining flour, a tablespoon at a time.)

    3. Gather the potato dough into a ball; place it on a heavily floured surface and pat it into a thick rectangle. With a floured rolling pin, roll it into a large rectangle about 1 inch thick, dusting it frequently with a little flour to prevent it from sticking to the pin or board.

    4. With a sharp knife or pastry wheel, cut 2-inch-wide strips down the length of the dough, then slice diagonally into 2½-inch-wide lengths. Gently score the top of each diamond shaped patty by making shallow lines down its length.

    5. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a heavy 10- to 12-inch skillet set over high heat. When the foam has almost subsided add 6 or 8 of the patties and brown those 3 to 5 minutes on each side, turning them over carefully with a large spatula.

    6. Transfer the patties to a serving platter and cover them loosely with foil to keep them warm while you fry the remaining patties, adding more butter to the pan as needed.

    To Serve: 8 to 10
