sweet potato fritters  


  • 1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil


  1. Mix together the potatoes, onions, flour, eggs, salt, and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a deep 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking.
  3. Working in small batches, spoon a heaped tablespoon of the mixture into the hot oil, flatten the latke, with a fork, so that is around  3 inches in diameter.
  4. Reduce heat to moderate and cook until golden, about 1 1/2 minutes on each side.
  5. Transfer the latkes with a slotted spoon to paper towels so that the excess oil is drained.
