Despite the name unfortunately these are not cake! However they are very tasty and more like a hash brown in texture, spicy but not too spicy, unless like me you put too much chilli in by mistake, and great as a snack or with a huge variety of meals!
Syn Free on Slimming World, serves 4 as a starter or side dish.
300g potatoes peeled and chopped
250g sweet potatoes peeled and chopped
Red onion finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic (crushed) or 1 large tsp lazy garlic
2tsp chilli flakes
Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the potatoes and sweet potatoes, bring to the boil again, cover and simmer for approximately 15 minutes until soft, then drain and mash.
Meanwhile spray a large frying pan with low calorie cooking spray, stir fry the onion and garlic for approximately 2 minutes then add the chilli and fry for a further minute.
Mix the chilli, onion and garlic into the mashed potatoes and shape into potato cakes.
Spray the frying pan with a little more cooking spray and then fry the potato cakes for approximately 5 minutes turning once until evenly cooked and lightly golden on both sides. I prefer them a little darker but the choice is yours!
Nb. if you use crushed chilli with seeds in use less (around half the amount) as this is much stronger than chilli flakes!
