Potato Pancakes (Дранікі)

Draniki-a national dish of Belarus. It is also popular in many other European countries.

6 large starchy potatoes, finely grated
1 medium onion, finely grated
1 egg, beaten
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
Salt and pepper
Vegetable oil for frying

Drain off any excess liquid from the potatoes. Place potatoes in a bowl.  Add onion, egg, salt, pepper and flour. Mix well. 
In a large skillet  heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Drop potato mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls in hot oil. Flatten to form patties. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Serve with sour cream.
