Gromperekichelcher


Luxemburgers love Gromperekichelcher! It's somehow in our DNA. The Swiss have their Rösti and we have our Gromperekichelcher. This very simple Luxembourg classic is the highlight at every funfair. Back in the days, our grandmas used to prepare them for family gatherings. My grandma used to serve the potato fritters with our traditional vegetable soup. 

Even though everyone loves Gromperekichelcher over here, I only like them homemade. At the funfairs or other public events, I find them way too greasy and too bland. Making them at home is always nice because you can juggle with spices and herbs. 


For 25 Gromperekichelcher you need:
10 medium potatoes
2 eggs
a bunch of parsley
1 garlic clove
2 shallots
25g butter
110 ml sunflower oil
salt
pepper
nutmeg
Apple compote


First wash the potatoes. Peel the three vegetables and grate them (one by one) either manually or with a food processor. Now put the potatoes in a cloth and press all the moisture out. Put the above mentioned ingredients into a bowl, chop the parsley and add to the potato mixture as well. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Heat butter and oil into a frying pan until they start bubbling.

Drop a heaped tablespoon of the potato mix into the pan, flatten and fry on each side for about 2 minutes. Then take out of the pan and lay on a plate lined with kitchen paper in order to absorb part of the grease. Repeat.

We usually serve the Gromperekichelcher with apple compote. 

Enjoy!!!
