  • teaspoon of baking powder, salt, pepper, and vegetable oil
  • 8 slices of smoked salmon
  • 4 tablespoons of sour cream
  • 1 bunch of chopped chives


  1. Coarsely grate the potatoes and leave for 30 mins. Then drain and rinse under cold water. Gently press between your hands to dry.
  2. Add the finely sliced onion, eggs, flour and baking powder. Season well with salt and pepper. 
  3. Pour a generous amount of oil in a frying pan and heat until smoking hot.
