Last night, I grated raw sweet potatoes, blended in eggs, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt, and fried in a mixture of butter and olive oil. Delicious!

I was afraid they wouldn't hold up very well without some kind of added starch- I was prepared to add tapioca starch before putting up the 2nd batch but it wasn't necessary.

Grating in a whole onion didn't work well- it didn't grate evenly and the texture was weird for some that had big chunks of onion in them. Plus I think the dried onion powder helped hold them together.

Do you pour the batter like a pancake where you fry on both sides a few minutes? It sounds fantastic but I"m unsure just what form it takes.

Here is a short description of the history of latkes and general instructions:

I spoon out a portion- about 3-4 latkes per batch in my frying pan. Then I cover the pan and let it sit a few minutes, until it's mostly cooked through. Then I flip them over with a spatula and let cook a few more minutes.

The texture of the batter is MUCH lumpier than a grain-based pancake.

They sound delicious, and I will be making some of these!

Glad they worked out so well!! Wondering - is there anything else in the onion and the garlic powders that might bind?

The packages of onion and garlic powder that I bought for Passover don't specify any additional ingredients. Being certified kosher for Passover, they couldn't contain wheat or corn ingredients, though theoretically they may have traces of tapioca and/or potato starch. If they do, though, it's not a lot- not enough to make a difference in the texture of baked goods.
