Anyone have a good recipe for latkes?  Something interesting?

Rather something crisp and lacy, please.

I'm planning to make these soon. I've used this quite a lot as a basis, works very well.

There must be an obvious difference between latkes and rosti, but what is it?

latkes usually have egg in them, rosti generally do not


“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

also latkes are usually made from raw potatoes and rosti are usually made with par-cooked potatoes

also, latkes are smaller.

 

And the way my grandma made them, denser - not shredded and lacy - feh!  Used a grater, grated them by hand so a little finger skin was always in there, along with an egg, matzoh meal, and if you were lucky, salt.

Sometimes we were a little too lucky, if you know what I mean.

It's my sense that you soak or rinse the grated potatoes to remove excess starch which makes the latkes dense. Then poor off the water from the rinse bowl until have a thin layer of potato starch in the bottom which is added back into the potato/egg mix. And the kind of potato has a lot to do with the density. This is all from my "notebook" of closely held but unproven beliefs.
