I am from Polish and German heritage, and this is not how we make potato pancakes, the potato's should be grated finer, and if you use 4 large potato's I use 2 onions, not drained, add 1 egg and stir all the contents together adding salt and pepper, and flour to give it a thick paste like consistency, then fry in oil, and then you will have real old fashioned German potato pancakes.
