Sweet Potato Cakes & Review: ‘Dukkah’

If I get a set of 2 ingredients… Sweet n Savory!!! My obvious choice is… Savory :) I can think of 1000 things to make out of it… but you hand over a sweet one and I’ll be stuck completely! Recently, when I received a wonderful hamper from Table of Plenty, I exactly fell into the same situation. First thing I did was… Picked up a pack of Dukkah (A nut & spice blend)!!!

Although I choose potatoes over any other ingredients, I went ahead using sweet potatoes this time! And later I realized it was definitely a great choice. I tried making these ‘Sweet Potato Cakes’ spiced with Table of Plenty’s Dukkah spice-mix and believe me, it was one of the best patties I ever had! So moist, flavorful and crisp… Ohhh yes, Dukkah itself was so flavorful that I didn’t have to add any other spices at all… You must try this one!!!



3 Sweet Potatoes (bigger ones)
1-2 tbsp Cornflour
1/2 Onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp Dukkah
Salt, to taste
1-2 tsp Lemon juice
Oil, to pan-roast



  1. Wash and peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into big pieces.
  2. Pressure-cook (or boil in a pot) for 2-3 whistles.
  3. Once it cools down a bit, mash them in a bowl.
  4. Heat 2 tsp of oil in a pan and saute onions until translucent.
  5. Add it to the mashed sweet potatoes and add cornflour as you need (make sure you don’t add too much of it else it’ll be a bit dougy).
  6. Mix in the salt and Dukkah :)
  7. Divide the mix in 12-14 equal portions and make patties out of each.
  8. Heat a few drizzles of oil in a pan and place all the patties in it.
  9. Let them get roasted on medium flame and cook them equally on the other side too.
  10. Serve them hot with a few lemon juice drizzles on top!



  • You can add more vegetables in case if you want it to be more crunchies inside.
  • Also, deep-frying is always an option but I prefer to pan-roast or shallow-fry till I can :)
