This draining removes the starch.

Sift together the baking powder, salt and flour.
Add to the potato mixture and blend thoroughly.
Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the potato mixture.
Heat the vegetable oil in a frypan until very hot.
Drop in the batter by the spoonful and cook until golden brown.
