To Cook

Put both the mashed and grated potatoes in a bowl. Sprinkle over the flour and seasoning and mix until evenly combined. Add the milk, little by little, until you have a dropping consistency.

Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add a knob of butter. When the butter begins to foam, spoon a tablespoon of the mixture into the frying pan.

Remove from the pan and keep warm while you finish cooking the pancakes. Serve with sliced smoked salmon and a spoon of soured cream.
