When I eat ethnic foods, I try to stay as close to the real thing as possible. I added matzo meal to the potato mixture for more authenticity. (Corn meal may be substituted). The meal helps to fry up crispy.

I made these last night for dinner and everyone loved them. I did fry them up and keep them in a 200 degree oven until all of them were cooked so no one was waiting or eating cold ones. I didn't have any scallions but I do have a bunch of chive plants so I used those instead.
