potato pancake

5-6 potato, peeled and shredded, extra water removed
All purpose flour
2-3 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
Additional taster; eg shallot, red pepper, shredded chicken, minced meat, chives

Add all the ingredients together in a big bowl.
Add more flour or water until you reach the thickness you like.
Heat oil on a pan
Fry the batter like you would fry pancake.
Nice to be enjoyed hot with chilly sauce or mayonnaise or any sauce you like. Or you could enjoy it like I did- on its own.
