Darcy has a Sephardic background and used the Original Hash Brown Potato Latke recipe as a starting point.


  • 1-pound Hash Browns (defrosted if frozen)
  • 1 medium red onion, finely diced
  • 23 chopped sprigs of green onion/scallions
  • 12 minced green Thai chilis (small green chilis)
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro leaves (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of red chili powder or cayenne pepper (not to be confused with brown chili powder)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup flour (can be gluten free)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • Canola Oil for frying
  • Cooling yogurt dip like tzatziki or raita (optional)
  • Mint and date chutneys (optional)


  1. Combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet.
  3. Drop spoonful’s of the latke mixture into the oil.  Cook until browned on both sides. 
  4. Repeat with the remaining latke batter. 
  5. Pair these latkes with a cooling yogurt dip like tzatziki or raita, or with mint and date chutneys.




For less heat, use only 1 green chili and reduce the red hot chili powder (or cayenne) to 1/4 tsp.
