Thai Sweet Potato Latkes



  • 1 lb sweet potato or yam (peeled & grated)
  • 1 onion (grated)
  • 2 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1 tsp Thai Kitchen Spicy Thai Chili Sauce
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 green onions (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup Clubhouse Rice Flour
  • Clubhouse Ground Black Pepper to taste


  • Serve with a dollop of sour cream and Thai Kitchen Sweet Red Chili Sauce


  1. Combine the grated sweet potato, grated onion, and lime juice. Put the mixture into a towel and squeeze out all the moisture.
  2. Then put the sweet potato mixture into a bowl and add the eggs, green onions, ginger, cilantro, chili sauce, rice flour and salt & pepper to taste. Combine.

There are 2 ways you can cook these:

  1. You can cook them in a frying pan, using 1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying OR
  2. We like to use a pancake griddle, and lightly spray it with cooking oil. This method uses a fraction of the oil, and works just as well!

Now it’s time to cook them:

  1. Just scoop large spoonfuls of mix (about 2 tbsp), and flatten them with a spatula.
  2. Fry for about 2-3 minutes per side.
  3. If you want to make the whole batch up at the same time, put the cooked latkes in a 300 degree oven until dinner time!


Don’t make the latkes too big, or they won’€™t cook properly.
