In large skillet, heat 1/4 inch (5 mm) oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Scoop 1/4 cup (50 mL) latke batter into pan; flatten to 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness. Leaving about 1 inch (2.5 cm) between flattened latkes, repeat with remaining batter. Fry latkes, turning once, until browned and crisp around edges, 5 to 6 minutes.

Drain latkes on paper towel-lined rimmed baking sheets. Repeat with remaining batter, removing any cooked bits from skillet after each batch and heating more oil as necessary. (Make-ahead: Let latkes cool. Cover lightly and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Remove paper towels and reheat in 450°F/230°C oven for 5 minutes.)
