Raggmunk is a Swedish dish that consists of finely grated potatoes that are mixed into a regular pancake batter (flour, milk, eggs, salt) which is then fried like regular pancakes. In English, the dish is called "potato pancake" and there are many similar dishes around Europe such as "latkes" and "draniki". Swedish raggmunk is usually served with fried salted pork belly and lingonberries.
The recipe I use contains relatively little potatoes, but that's how I like them. You can easily increase the amount of potatoes to 1 kg if you would like more. There are not many difficult steps in the recipe, but it is important to grate the potatoes finely and squeeze as much liquid out of the grated potatoes as you can. I grate the potatoes as finely as I can, partly because I think the result is better and partly because larger pieces take longer to cook. I avoid grating the potatoes straight into the pancake batter as some potatoes can contain a lot of liquid, which then gives a batter that is too loose. You should also be quite quick after grating the potatoes as they easily become discolored.
Having carrot as an accessory is almost a must for me. When I took the pictures and recorded the video for this recipe, I thought it would look good with grated carrot, but in retrospect I probably think it is better to slice the carrot in small sticks instead. I do this mostly to get a different texture, the taste is of course the same.
If you do not have access to pork belly, just use bacon instead. I have also used different kinds of sausages, which actually works quite well.

- Mix the flour with half of the milk and beat until smooth. Then add the rest of the milk.
- Add eggs and salt, beat until everything is mixed.
- Peel the potatoes and then grate them finely.
- Squeeze most of the water out of the grated potatoes and then mix it into the rest of the batter.
- Fry in butter like regular pancakes. This recipe yields about 8 raggmunks.
- Cook the pork in the oven, 200°C until done (about 20 minutes). I usually do this while frying the raggmunks on the stove.
- Grate the carrot finely (or cut into smaller sticks).
- Add a small dollop of raw lingonberries.
