  2. Mix the entirety together until nicely blended.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a huge skillet over medium-high warmth.
  4. Scoop out about 1/four cup of the potato aggregate and form it right into a patty the usage of your arms. Repeat with the last potato combination.
  5. Carefully location the potato patties into the hot oil and flatten them barely with a spatula. Cook for 3-4 mins on each facet, or till they may be golden brown and crispy.
  6. Once cooked, switch the potato desserts to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any extra oil.
