Oh how I love these tasty little latkes!
They are a great side dish with
add a little dollop of sour cream…heaven!
Worth the effort. Healthy. Delish!
My kind of food!
1 lb sweet potato or yam, peeled & grated 1 onion, grated 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice 2 eggs, lightly beaten 3 sliced green onions 1/3 cup whole wheat flour 3/4 tsp salt 1/2 tsp chili powder 1/4 tsp curry (optional) 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
Combine the grated sweet potato, grated onion, and lemon juice. Put the mixture into a towel and squeeze out all the moisture. Then put it all into a bowl and add the eggs, green onions, flour and spices. Combine.
There are 2 ways you can cook these:
You can cook them in a frying pan, using 1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying OR We like to use a pancake griddle, and lightly spray it with Pam. Uses a fraction of the oil, and works just as well!
Now it's time to cook them:
Just scoop large spoonfuls of mix, and flatten them with a spatula. Fry for about 2-3 minutes per side. If you want to make the whole batch up at the same time, put the cooked latkes in a 300 degree oven until dinner time!
Don't make the latkes too big, or they won't cook properly.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
