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. :)

Very good and flavorful but not overpowering. Quick to fry up and disappeared just as fast.
