We have here a potato pancake recipe with a slight Indian touch. There is something different about these potato pancakes, which would probably be the flavor of the garam masala. Garam masala is a mixture of ground spices commonly used in India, and which was also used as a seasoning in this recipe. The little cakes came out crispy golden brown, and the green onion was a nice addition. Sweet potatoes are used in making these pancakes but for another variety, you can also use white potatoes. You will love the simplicity of this recipe and its end results! Try this out!
Serves: 8
  • 1½ cups coarsely grated sweet potatoes (265 g)
  • 1½ teaspoons garam masala, or curry powder (7.5 g)
  • ½ teaspoon salt (2.5 g)
  • ¼ cup finely chopped green onion (40 g)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the potatoes, garam masala or curry, salt, green onions and beaten eggs. Mix thoroughly until well blended.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet. Spray with cooking spray. Scoop a ¼ cup measure of potato mixture and drop into the skillet. Gently flatten into rounded patties using a spatula. Fry patties in batches to make sure there is still space between each patty.
  3. Cook potato patties on medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until browned.
  4. Flip the pancakes, cover and cook the other side for 3 minutes more. Remove cover, and continue cooking until browned.
  5. Serve warm and enjoy!
Top these potato pancakes with a dollop of nonfat yogurt or Mango Peach Chutney.
