• Medium dark-fleshed sweet potato1
  • Cup all-purpose flour1/4
  • Curry powder1-2 tsp
  • Brown sugar1 tsp
  • Baking powder1/2 tsp
  • Salt & pepperN/A
  • Large egg, beaten with a fork1
  • Cup milk1/4
  • Canola oil
  • **If you like, add some grated onion or chopped green onions to the grated sweet potato. A tart apple might go nicely, too.

Preparation Instructions:

  1. Coarsely grate the sweet potato (don’t bother peeling it) using the coarse side of a box grater. Place in a bowl and sprinkle the flour, curry powder, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper over top; toss with a fork or your fingers to coat.
  2. Add the egg and milk and stir to combine well.
  3. Heat a generous drizzle of oil in a heavy skillet set over medium heat; drop small portions of the batter in and flatten them almost as much as you can. Don’t crowd the pan — depending on the size of your skillet, cook a couple or a few at a time. Cook until golden and crisp on both sides, flipping and adding extra oil as necessary. Serve warm, with sour cream or applesauce.
