Gromperekichelcher, from Luxembourg, is fried potato snacks. I read that they are sold in fairs and Christmas markets as snacks. It is street food, a delicious one. A potato-based snack and deep-fried, I know everyone will love it. Serve them warm with apple compote like in Luxembourg or with ketchup or chutney. I followed Anne in her Anneskitchen. She comments that 'Gromperekichelcher is the highlight of the annual ‘Schueberfouer’, a massive funfair that pops up in the city for three weeks, with rollercoasters, fun rides and lots of street food.' Her recipe calls for an egg and I modified it to make an eggless version. Also, she made 4 but I reduced the size and made 8 out of it which helps in portion control too.

This month we are traveling to Luxembourg in our Eat The World Recipe Challenge group. Luxembourg is a small landlocked country in Europe. The cuisine of Luxembourg is influenced by its neighboring countries. The influence of German, Belgian, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese cuisine can be seen in Luxembourg foods. It is a great experience to know about different countries, their culture, and food.

In addition to the potato fritters, gromperekichelcher, I tried the Luxembourgish doughnuts, verwurrelter. I made an eggless version, it was good but still needs more improvements. My son loved it. Bouneschlupp (bean soup) is a lovely simple soup. I am yet to try Quetschentaart (plum tart) and Ietsebulli (green pea soup, vegetarian version) and would try them sometime.


Makes 8

Potatoes - 2.5 cups, grated
Onions - 1/2 cup, grated
Salt - 1/2 tsp 
Rice flour - 2 tbsp
Oil - 3 cups


Add the grated potatoes, onions, salt, flour, and parsley. Mix and set aside for 30 minutes. Mix as water would have collected at the bottom. Divide into 8 portions. Heat oil in a pan. Slightly flatten each potato portion and fry 3-4 minutes on each side, till golden brown. Drain excess oil. 

Serve immediately.
