Adapted from here.

4-6 Russet or 6-8 Red potatoes
1 medium or large onion
1 tbsp olive oil + more for frying
1-2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 whole egg + 1 egg white
(If your potatoes are very large, add another egg white)
2-3 tbsp flour

  1. Peel and grate the potatoes. Spread out a large muslin cloth.
  2. Pick up the four corners, then hold the edges. Twist the towel and squeeze the potatoes. Continue twisting and squeezing until the potatoes feel dry to touch when you open the towel.
  3. Grate and squeeze the onion in the same way.
  4. In a bowl, add all ingredients and mix well with your hands.
  5. Heat 2 tbsp of oil on medium heat. Grab about 1/2 cup of mixture and roll into a ball.
