Ingredient Quantity
Potatoes 4 large
All-purpose flour 1/2 cup
Milk 1/2 cup
Eggs 2
Salt 1/2 teaspoon
Butter 4 tablespoons

Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: Peel the potatoes and grate them into a large bowl. Squeeze out any excess moisture from the grated potatoes using a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth.
  • Step 2: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, milk, eggs, and salt until well combined. Pour this mixture over the grated potatoes and stir until everything is evenly combined.
  • Step 3: Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of butter. Once the butter has melted and is sizzling, spoon a portion of the potato batter into the pan to form a pancake-like shape. Flatten it slightly with the back of a spoon.
  • Step 4: Cook the raggmunkar for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Repeat this process with the remaining potato batter, adding more butter to the pan as needed.
  • Step 5: Serve the raggmunkar hot with lingonberry jam and fried pork belly or bacon. Enjoy!
