The 'My Name is Yeh' blog recently put together a latke recipe that draws inspiration from traditional Japanese ingredients. Hanukkah is currently underway, which means that many people are putting together traditional holiday meals. This recipe offers an unexpected take on a classic Hanukkah dish.
The unusual latke recipe involves adding furikake seasoning to potato pancakes. To begin, the recipe involves making traditional latkes out of potatoes, eggs and flour. After each pancakes has been fried in sesame oil, the recipe calls for a dash of furikake seasoning. The seasoning contains a mix of seaweed, toasted sesame seed and dried fish. Although it may sound like an unusual addition to potato pancakes, the furikake seasoning adds an umami element to the slightly sweet dish.
