German Potato Latkes

G says Germany, the fourth most big country of Europe .My recipe from the country is these delicious potato pancakes .Mostly recipes requires egg but I opted to make it without eggs.

Pork, beef, and poultry are the main varieties of meat consumed in Germany, with pork being the most popular. The average person in Germany will consume up to 61 kg of meat in a year. Among poultry, chicken is most common, although duck, goose, and turkey are also enjoyed. Game meats, especially boar, rabbit, and venison are also widely available all year round.

Vegetables are often used in stews or vegetable soups, but are also served as side dishes. Carrots, turnips, spinach, peas, beans, broccoli and many types of cabbage are very common. A wide variety of cakes and tarts are served throughout the country, most commonly made with fresh fruit. Apples, plums, strawberries, and cherries are used regularly in cakes. Cheesecake is also very popular, often made with quark. Black Forest cake, made with cherries is probably the most well-known example of a wide variety of typically German tortes filled with whipped or butter cream.So let’s start the recipe .yum
