1 pound (orange) sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons brown sugar
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon curry powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup applesauce
½ cup sour cream
1 tablespoon chopped chives or parsley


Heat the oil to a medium-high heat in a 10 or 12-inch skillet.
Using a colander, strain as much out of the grated sweet potatoes as you can.
In a large bowl, add the sweet potatoes, egg, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, curry powder, onion powder, salt, and nutmeg. Mix well.
Form small flat pancakes using about 2 tablespoons of mixture.
Fry four latkes at a time for 1½-2 minutes per side until browned. Remove the latkes from the oil and place on a plate lined with paper towels.
Serve warm with applesauce and sour cream.
Garnish with chopped chives or parsley.

Bon Apetit!
