I made this recipe for Hanukkah, though it's great as a side dish on any day. It takes a bit of work, but it's really delicious. We normally don't eat much fried foods, but I thought we can indulge once in a while.
For approximately 4 servings, you'll need:
1 onion, chopped
1\2 sweet potato or 1\2 cup pumpkin, or a bit of both if you like
Grate your veggies. I like mine roughly grated.
5 cloves of garlic, or more or less to taste, squashed.
1\2 cup flour
1\2 cup matzo flour or bread crumbs
Salt, pepper, spices to taste. I added some red hot pepper, turmeric and cumin. Mix it all together. Look at the mixture – it should be sticky enough so that your latkes won't fall apart. You might have to add a bit more flour if it's needed.
Fry on both sides until it gets nice golden-brown, and enjoy.
