Sweet Potato Pancakes


Sweet Potato - 1 (large)
Rice Flour - 1/2 a cup
Sugar - 2 tbs
Cardamom - 1/4 tsp
Heavy Cream
or Milk - 1/4 cup


Microwave the sweet potatoes at Potato setting (8-32 oz) or microwave it for 4-5 minutes. Mash the potatoes with a fork. Add in the rice flour and cardamom powder. Combine the ingredients well. Dissolve sugar in heavy cream and slowly add to the rice-potato mixture. The consistency should be like cookie dough not like a pancake batter. Roll out the dough in rectangular shape. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters.

Heat a nonstick griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Place the shaped pancakes on the pan. Pour clarified butter around the corner of each pancake as you do for dosa. Fry one side for a minute, turn it over and fry for another minute.

Serve it warm.

More than my kids, Mr.B enjoyed it so much. When I started making it, Mr.B told me not to compel him to eat as he is not a big fan of sweet potato. But he was the one who had it the most.
