First peel the potatoes. I peel the peeled potatoes in cold water during peeling so that they do not turn brown.

Now each individual potato is roughly grated in a large bowl with a vegetable grater.

I put the coconut fat in a pan and let it get hot. Now I pour the potato pancake in portions into the pan with a spoon and flatten it a little. Now it is already sizzling in the pan.

I use the existing dough to make more potato pancakes and fry them in the pan until they are golden yellow. The individual pieces are turned over several times by me. So they get a nice color and are well through. Each individual piece takes about 8-10 minutes. The temperature should be medium heat. If the heat is too high, they can burn themselves quickly.

As soon as the potato pancakes are fried golden yellow I give them out of the breakdown and let them drip on a kitchen paper. The potato pancakes can now be served. Deliciously simple!

Fresh, finely chopped herbs can now be added to the potato grater. Finely grated carrots can also be used in the batter. Furthermore, they can be covered with ham and cheese after baking, which is my favorite variant. If you really like it crispy and crispy, you should leave out the sour cream and put the potato pancakes as thin as possible in the pan.
