1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated

2 scallions, finely chopped

1/2 cup plus 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Vegetable oil


  1. Stir together potatoes, scallions, flour, eggs, salt, and pepper.
  2. Heat a film of oil in a deep 12-inch non-stick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches of 4, spoon 1/8 cup potato mixture per latke into the oil and flatten to 3-inch diameter with a slotted spatula. Reduce heat to moderate and cook until golden, about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Transfer latkes with spatula to paper towels to drain.
