Curried Sweet Potato Latkes


OK, all this talk of Hanukkah and latkes finally made me break down and make some. Every year I do this, and every year I’m reminded of how easy it is to make them, and how delicious they are. It may come as no surprise that I’m a fan of a) curry, and b) sweet potatoes, and so when I happened upon c) curried sweet potato latkes, I had to make them.

And really? Wow. They’re like latkes extreme, especially with a blob of sour cream to cool down the heat (you’ll be gobbling them straight from the pan, right?) and warm spice.

I posted the recipe over at Family Kitchen.

    WOW. I think sweet potato latkes might be my new weekend food friend. I can just picture these on a plate next to some bacon and eggs!

    These are the latkes that Eli makes, too. This year, he made 450, total, (for our annual Chanukah party) and half of them were sweet potato-curry. They’re my favorite kind.

    I wish I was downtown today Julie! I have your books all bookmarked and ready to go (I was 2nd in line and the one who was introduced as worshipping you at the book signing) so I can’t wait to get baking and cooking. Hope you’re feeling better!!

    I just made apple latkes last week and your sweet potato version looks yummy too! Sour cream? Definitely!

    […] There are plenty of ways to make a latke – you can mix your grated potatoes with egg or toss them with flour, or both. You could use sweet potatoes and spike them with curry powder. […]
