  1. In a medium bowl combine potatoes, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, paprika, flour and pepper. Mix very well.
  2. Coat a medium skillet with oil and heat on medium-high. Using a fork or spoon quickly spread a thin layer of potato mixture over the entire bottom of the pan. Make the pancake as thin as possible, without gaps or holes. Fry for 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip with a spatula and cook on the other side.
  3. Repeat with remaining potato mixture.

This recipe is great. Placki (that's the correct spelling) are very popular in Poland. They are quick to make and delicious. They do have a specific texture, but if you're open for a different cusine (that's the purpose afterall) then you'll love them!!!

the recipe calls for grated potatoes, you can do this in the food processor and throw in 1/4 medium onion, this will taste like the origional. searve with sour cream or jus a little salt.

Nice recipe,but my polish ancestors probably never heard of garlic. Skipped it and used grated oninon in place of the powder. Tasty served with applesauce.

1st recipe I found for Platski. My mom used to make them all the time and I haven't had any since she passed on. They bring back fond memories and this recipe for Platski is a keeper. Thank you Holley. Note for Dorothy June try it again.

My Polish Mom served these to us for lunch. She did not put onion powder or garlic or paprika. The way we ate these was with sugar sprinkled on then we rolled them up. What a great lunch snack.

Good-took a few tries to get the hang of it. Using a non-stick pan definetly helps. Next time I'll add chives and maybe sour cream.
