Prep 40 mins Cook 4 mins  per batch
Cauliflower-Curry Latkes
Ingredients
  • 1  pound  head cauliflower
  • 2  pounds  russet potatoes, peeled
  • 2  large  onions, about 1 lb.
  • 2 1/4 - 2 1/2  cups  matzo meal
  • 2  teaspoons  curry powder
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1  teaspoon  ground coriander
  • 1  teaspoon  kosher salt or 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  cayenne pepper, optional
  • 3  eggs, beaten
  •  Peanut or cooking oil for frying
Directions

1. Break cauliflower into 1/2-inch florets; reserve stems. In stockpot bring 6 cups water to boiling. Add a dash of salt and florets; cook for 3 minutes. Drain; cool in iced water. Drain again; pat dry.

2. Meanwhile, in a food processor* finely shred cauliflower stems; transfer to bowl. Finely shred potatoes and onions; add to stems. Stir in 3/4 cup matzo meal, curry powder, cumin, coriander, salt, and cayenne pepper. Add eggs; mix well. Stir in florets and enough matzo meal (about 1/2 to 3/4 cup) until mixture holds together.

3. Form cauliflower mixture in patties, using about 3 tablespoons for each. Place remaining 1 cup matzo meal in shallow dish; dip patties in matzo meal; set aside.

4. In a skillet heat 1/4 inch of oil until a little cauliflower mixture dropped in oil sizzles. Carefully add 4 patties to hot oil. Fry over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until golden. Drain on paper towels. Keep latkes warm in 300 degree F oven. Repeat with remaining patties. Serve warm. Makes about 24 latkes.
