If you’re looking for an interesting use of sweet potatoes, easy sweet potato latkes are the recipe you have to try! They are quick to make and absolutely delicious.


Units Scale
  • 400 g of sweet potatoes (grated)
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 garlic (minced)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons plain flour
  • 50 g of parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons sunflower oil (for frying)
  • 200 ml sour cream (for serving)
  • Bunch of fresh dill (for serving)


  1. First, prepare the dough. Peel the sweet potatoes and grate them on the coarse side of the grater. Place in a bowl along with the finely chopped onion and minced garlic.
  2. Then add two eggs, grated parmesan cheese, chili powder, and flour. Season with salt and black pepper. Mix well.
  3. In a larger pan, heat the sunflower oil and add a nice tablespoon of the mixture to the edge of the pan. Form into a latke and repeat until the pan is filled with smaller latkes.
  4. Fry together for about 6 minutes (3 minutes on each side). Their beautiful golden color will tell you if they are ready.
  5. Have kitchen paper ready to place your finished latkes on. It absorbs excess oil.
  6. Repeat this process until you have used all of the dough. Serve with some sour cream and freshly chopped dill.


Instead of a yellow onion, you can also use spring onions. In this case, use two to three spring onions (depending on their size).

Sour cream is a must!
