  • 2 cups cooked sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves or parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Mash the sweet potatoes in a bowl and then add the flour, garam masala, ginger, cilantro or parsley, yogurt, salt and pepper. Mix well and then form into small patties about 2-inches in diameter.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook the patties in batches so they have plenty of room to fry. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side, or until they are golden and crispy and cooked through. Serve with Pineapple Salsa.
