I first tasted these at a Hanukkah party in Pueblo, Colorado. The first bite got me hooked. I love this unusual take on traditional potato latkes. —Rachel Garcia, Arlington, Virginia

"I made this sweet potato latkes as written. My husband and I loved them. The curry was not too strong. I served them with cool sour cream. This recipe is a keeper....because my husband is not a big fan of sweet potato, but he loved these latkas!"

"Delicious! I made a half recipe and went very light with the spices because I didn't want an overwhelming curry flavor. I also sauteed some onion and added that (as was called for in regular latkes that I just made), and that added a nice flavor as well. Great recipe...thanks!"

"Surprisingly flavorful and quite yummy! Didn't have the curry so I left it out and used GF flour blend and 1/4 c. Buckwheat flour and served with the Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon and steamed asparagus. These fritters disappeared fast!"

"Very Yummy- but FYI, The baking powder would be omitted per Jewish tradition since it is a leavening. :)"
