I first tasted these at a Hanukkah party in Pueblo, Colorado. The first bite got me hooked. I love this unusual take on traditional potato latkes.
1/2 cup king arthur unbleached 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 2% milk
4 cups grated peeled sweet potatoes
oil for frying
1. In a small bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Stir in eggs and milk until blended. Add sweet potatoes; toss to coat.
2. 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.
