Pretty sure they serve these in heaven.
1971 recipe from old Idaho Potato advertising
2 Idaho potatoes
2 egg yolks
1 cup cold water
1 1/4 cups sifted flour
1 tsp. each: salt and paprika
2 tsp. curry powder
salad oil or shortening in deep fat fryer, heated to 375˚
Peel potatoes and slice thin. Spread on towel to dry. Mix remaining ingredients lightly. Batter should be a little lumpy. Dip potatoes in batter and fry in a comfortable amount of time, turning until fritters are puffy and golden. Serve right away. Makes 4 or more crunchy servings.
Bet this 1940s farm family ate a lot of fritters.
