Sweet Potato Latke Recipe

Curry provides an unusual take on the Chanukah classic, latkes. This aromatic spice along with the vibrant orange color of sweet potatoes makes this dish a feast for senses.

Sweet potatoes are a much better choice nutritionally than ordinary white potatoes. Did you know that sweet potatoes have a lower glycemic index than white potatoes? White potatoes are much more likely to spike your blood sugar. Other healthy benefits of sweet potoes are fiber, vitamin A, and beta carotene.

If your family is finicky then play with the ratio of sweet potatoes and white potatoes. They might be willing to tolerate a little bit of the orange stuff thrown in there. The next year sneak in an additional one.
