INGREDIENTS

For Latkes

5-6 medium blue potatoes, washed, peeled, and grated
1 medium white onion, grated
2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped fine
2 eggs, beaten
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
Vegetable oil

For Cumin Tomato Sour Cream

1 cup sour cream
¼ cup tomatoes, chopped fine
1 tablespoon cumin
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped fine
1 teaspoon jalapeño, chopped fine
Juice of half of a lime
2 teaspoons salt

PREPARATION

In a large mixing bowl, combine potatoes, onion, thyme, eggs, flour, cumin, cumin seeds, salt, and pepper, and mix well. Heat a large heavy bottom skillet over high heat making sure there is enough oil to cover the bottom generously. Form 2 to 3-inch pancakes, drop into pan and brown on both sides until deep golden brown, usually about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Take off heat, and place on paper towels so excess oil can be drained.

Combine all ingredients for cumin tomato sour cream in a small mixing bowl, and mix well until smooth and thoroughly mixed. Serve cold on top of hot latkes.
