Description

Using sweet potatoes for this traditional recipe gives an interesting twist of color and flavor. 

Ingredients

1 pound
sweet potato (peeled and coarsely grated)
2  
scallion (finely chopped)
1/3 cup
flour, all-purpose
2  
egg (lightly beaten)
1 teaspoon
salt
1/2 teaspoon
black pepper
3/4 cup
vegetable oil

Instructions

Stir together potatoes, scallions, flour, eggs, salt, and pepper.

Heat oil in a deep 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot, but not smoking. Working in batches of 4, spoon 1/8 cup potato mixture per latke into oil and flatten to 3-inch diameter with a slotted spatula. Reduce heat to moderate and cook until golden, about 1 ½ minutes on each side. Transfer latkes with spatula to paper towels to drain.
