Shoshi's Sweet Potato Latkes

This Chanukah, stir it up and add a little soul to your celebration by making sweet potato latkes. Trust me, make these latkes and people be looking for them every year (maybe even year round). Holla!

Shoshi’s Sweet Potato Latkes

1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated

2 scallions, finely chopped
1/3 cup all-purpose flour (or matzoh meal)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten1 teaspoon salt
1 tsp. cinnamon (optional, this will add an extra kick)

1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup vegetable oil

Stir together potatoes, scallions, flour (matzoh meal), eggs, salt, cinnamon, 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 1/2 minutes on each side. Transfer latkes with spatula to paper towels to drain.

Serve with sour cream or yogurt.

Makes about 26 pancakes.
