CURRIED SWEET POTATO LATKES

Yield 16 3-inch pancakes

INGREDIENTS

PROCEDURE

  • 1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and grated

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tsp sugar

  • 1 tsp brown sugar

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 2 tsp ground coriander

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • 1/4 tsp turmeric

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne/ chilli powder

  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • ½ cup milk

  • Oil

  • Mix the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, coriander, cumin, turmeric, cayenne, and salt and pepper.

  • Add the eggs and just enough milk to the dry ingredients to make a stiff batter. Add the potatoes and mix. The batter should be moist but not runny; if too stiff, add more milk.

  • Heat ¼ inch oil in a cast iron pan or heavy-bottomed saute pan until it shimmers. Drop in the batter by tablespoons and flatten. Cook several minutes on each side until golden. 

  • Drain on paper towels and serve.
