Spicy delicious patties made from sweet potato and delicious with a quiche or just as a snack.



350 Grams Sweet Potatoes (peeled and cubed)

400 Grams Floury Potatoes (Peeled and Cubed)

1 Red Onion (peeled and finely chopped)

2 Cloves Garlic (crushed)

1 Tsp Mild Chilli Powder

Salt and Pepper to season


Place a saucepan of boiling water over medium heat and add potatoes. Boil for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile in a large mixing bowl mix together the garlic, red onion, chilli powder and a good amount of salt and pepper to season.

When the potatoes are soft strain well and then add to the mixing bowl and mash well combining all ingredients as you do so. Don’t worry if the mixture is not smooth, it is perfect to leave some small lumps of potato. I use a Masha for mine.

Spray a large frying pan, to fry in batches or two frying pans if you feel you can do them all at once, with Frylight or other low-calorie cooking spray and place over medium heat.

Form the mixture into 6-8 similar size patties and fry for 5 minutes before even attempting to turn them over. If you try to turn them too soon they could break.

Depending on patty size it should take approx 10-15 minutes in total to fry a set of patties. I used two pans and did them all at the same time but I guess it depends what else you are cooking.
