INDIAN SWEET POTATO PATTIES

“The real problem is not whether machines think, but whether men do.”  B F Skinner

What to do with sweet potatoes that you’ve been staring at for a good while, all the time thinking that you’re really not in the mood for a plain sweet potato.  This will help.

INGREDIENTS:

3 sweet potatoes

1 white potato

1 t ginger

1 t cumin

1 t coriander

jalapeno, finely chopped – you decide how much

2 T arrowroot or cornstarch

salt to taste

oil for frying

DISTRUCTIONS:

The potatoes should be cooked and ready to mash.  Mash them. Mix in all the other ingredients except for the oil.

Heat the oil in a pan.  Form the potato mixture into patties.  Fry them until nicely browned on both sides.  Voila!

I think, because these have an Indian flair, I’d serve them with lentils and a green veggie.  That would make a colorful plate.

I also think, which is unusual, that I’d like these with a spicy aioli.  In my book that would be mayo with some tabasco in it.  I like to cut right to the chase, whatever that means.
