Potato Pancakes



Coarsely grate potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Leave for 10 minutes before draining off liquid. Add flour and mix well. Chop onion, garlic and chives finely, and mix with potato mixture.

In a heavy pan, heat half of the oil and margarine. Place two heaped tablespoonfuls of the mixture into the pan. Gently flatten and fry on medium heat for 4-5 minutes each side until brown. When you have fried half the potato mixture, add remaining oil and margarine and fry remaining mixture. Serve hot.

These pancakes go well with a fresh green salad and pickled onions.
