"This is an alternative to the traditional potato pancake. Sweet potato pancakes, exotically spiced with cinnamon, curry powder and cumin. Great for Thanksgiving."

Loved it! It was a hit with the guests too. I added some cinnamon and served it with sprinkled powdered sugar. I will make this again (and again, and again).
I like sweet potatoes, and I like potato pancakes, but this was too greasy and had way too much curry. Smelled nice though, and my toddler liked having a few bites, so that's something.
Wasn't sure about the cinnamon in the write up, so I added 1 tsp. I wish I knew how much 1# of grated sweet potatoes was in cup measurement; I think that should have been stated. The pancakes had great taste, but with the amount of sweet potatoes I used, they came apart when flipping them--the top layer separated off the rest of the pancake!
Use half as much curry-- the taste was way too intense. Also, a teaspoon and a half of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg make it a bit sweeter.
I thought I would really love this recipe and found it to be only OK. There was nothing to drain from the potatoes after 10 min per directions. I added a little cinnamon and that worked just fine. I might try them again and serve topped with applesauce. I served with a dollop of FF sour cream and it also made them tastier.
Fantastic. We are big sweet potato fans, so we really loved this recipe. Will definitely make these again.
very nice,besides using sweet potato as anlternative to white potatoes, spices added subtle flavor.wondering about cinnamon amount omission, probably 1 tap. cinnamon is pretty stong spice. as for oil, used teflon coated pan and just brushed heated pan with oil. 1/2 cup seems too much.
my kids loved em! I put a little bit of allspice in them too and made them with brown sugar!
