It’s about time you try a latke if you haven’t already. These crunchy fritters, which are usually cooked with grated potatoes, matzo meal, eggs, and onion, were conventionally dished up during Hannukah, are still hard to resist.
Latkes are conventionally made using oil; however, I wanted to try making them in our wildly hit air fryer.
And guess what? It went off without a hitch. The fan’s high speed and the intense heat of an air fryer, known as the high-heat convection stove, results in crunchy potato latkes with a soft middle.
Cooked up into golden brown flawlessness, their delicious flavor, crunchy lacy edges, and soft, steamy interior will appeal to everyone.
Is It Essential To Peel The Potatoes?
Although this air-fryer recipe of latkes asks for peeled potatoes, keeping the skins on before grating will not affect the crispiness of the potato latkes. Although they may appear darker and the color may be uneven, the peels, on the other hand, provide some additional nutrition.
Can You Store the Latkes For Later?
You can easily keep the leftover latkes in the refrigerator for as long as 5 days in an airtight container.
What’s The Best Way to Reheat Air-Fryer Latkes?
Quickly returning the leftover potato latkes to the air fryer for around 3-4 minutes can return them to a delicious, crunchy state again. Heating up again for about 4-5 minutes on a baking sheet at 350 degrees F can bring back equally crunchy and delicious latkes.
Can There Be A Substitute for Matzo Meal in Latkes?
When you are making a Jewish cuisine that asks for a matzo meal, it’s not impossible to make it without this ingredient. You can easily use suitable substitutes for matzo meals like almond meals, quinoa flour, or matzo cake meals. When one is not catering during Passover, simple breadcrumbs, semolina, or coconut macaroons can be used as its substitutes.
