Recipe of the week: Curried Sweet Potato Latkes

If you are looking for a new way to spice up your holiday menu this is just the recipe for you. It takes a traditional Hannukah dish, potato pancakes and gives you an alternative spin with an Indian flavor. Not only are potatoes tastier but also a bit more nutritious. Preparing this dish should take approximately 30 minutes.


* 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons sugar
* 2 teaspoons curry powder
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 teaspoon brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon ground cumin
* 3/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* 1/4 teaspoon pepper
* 2 eggs, lightly beaten
* 1/2 cup milk
* 4 cups grated peeled sweet potatoes
* Oil for frying


* In a small bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Stir in eggs and milk until blended. Add sweet potatoes; toss to coat.
* Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into oil; press lightly to flatten. Fry for 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown, adding oil as needed. Drain on paper towels. Yield: 24 latkes.

Bon Appetit!
