Sweet Potato Latkes w/Chile-Lime Sour Cream (D)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 2

3 tablespoons plain yogurt
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 small chile pepper, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled, grated
2/3 cup minced onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 eggs, beaten
5 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
2 scallions, chopped

In a small bowl, combine yogurt, sour cream, chile pepper, lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir well and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine sweet potato, onion, salt and pepper. Add eggs; mix well. Add flour and mix again.

In a large skillet, heat butter or olive oil over medium-high heat. Do not use a non-stick skillet or latke crust will be too thin. Divide potato mixture in half; drop the halves into skillet to form two cakes. If your skillet cannot hold both latkes, cook them one at a time.

Flatten latkes with a large spoon until they are about 1" thick and about 5" in diameter. Fry 4 to 5 minutes until they are deep brown on the underside, then flip and cook for 3 to 4 minutes more.

Poster's Notes:
I'm searching for new and unique latke recipes and so far I've only found a few, but they are sure interesting sounding.
