Shred potatoes and onion in food processor fit with medium blade, then dry between sheets of paper towel. Combine potato mixture with eggs, flour, baking powder, parsley and salt in a large bowl. Heat a large skillet with 1/8 vegetable oil until hot, then pour in 1/3 cup potato mixture and flatten it with a wooden spoon. Fry until crisp and golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Serve with sour cream, chives, or applesauce.
