DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the sweet potato until soft, about 10 - 15 minutes, then drain.
  • In a bowl, combine the sweet potato, chickpeas, onion, garlic, cilantro, cumin, lemon juice and about 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix to a paste.
  • Sprinkle flour over little by little, and work into the paste. Add black pepper to taste.
  • Roll the fritters into balls in your palm (small balls), then flatten them.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan. Shallow-fry the fritters until cooked through and golden, about 3 - 4 minutes on each side.
  • Drain on paper towels. Serve hot, on warmed plates, with a garnish of cilantro and chakalaka or hot salsa.
