      Absolutely Superb! I simply cannot find words to describe how much we enjoyed these! I made two batches (each 1/2 a recipe) to make a whole batch.. 1/2 of which was made with yams, and 1/2 with russet potatoes. Both were absolutely splendid :-) The red bell pepper really adds such depth to these latkes, and the addition of curry is just marvelous. In 1/2 of the recipe I used cilantro and the other 1/2 I used parsley... both were wonderful! I think that it is really important to mention that any moisture that comes from the potatoes really needs to be drained. Thanks so much for this recipe. I will be making these regularly! :-D

      I used some leftover holiday Baked Yams to make these latkes. And they were wonderful! I left out the chopped red pepper and cilantro for expediency (just didn't have time to visit the store), but in my opinion even relatively "plain" these were amazing. And they fry up a beautiful orange color with golden edges. Note: I had sprinkled a bit of brown sugar on my previous baked yams recipe, however the little bit of sweetness although noticeable was actually complimentary to the curry flavors. So I say...If you've got leftover yams, don't be afraid to use 'em. Served with (a version of) Curry Yogurt Roasted Cauliflower. A success, thanks!
