Ingredients
  Potatoes 2 Pound (4 Large Sized)
  Grated carrot 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Grated onion 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Matzo meal 2 Tablespoon
  Baking powder 1 Pinch
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Eggs 2
  Shortening/Butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (For Deep Frying)
  Applesauce 1 Tablespoon, chilled
Directions

1. Peel potatoes and soak one hour in ice water.
2. Using medium grater, grate potatoes into a colander; drain thoroughly.
3. While potato is draining, combine carrot and onion in a medium bowl.
4. Add thoroughly drained potato (if necessary, squeeze out any excess moisture between folds of a clean dish towel) to onion and carrot.
5. Sprinkle matzo meal, baking powder, salt and pepper over vegetables.
6. In a small bowl, beat eggs well. Pour over vegetables and stir with a wooden spoon to thoroughly combine ingredients.
7. Heat half the shortening in a heavy skillet; for each pancake, drop two tablespoons of potato mixture into hot fat. Flatten with a spatula to make 3-inch cakes. Fry about 3 minutes on each side or until golden-brown.
8. Drain fried cakes on paper towels; keep hot while frying remaining cakes. Add more shortening as needed.
9. Serve hot with chilled applesauce.
