  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews soaked in water overnight
  • 1/4 cup water
  • zest of 1 lime
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 600 g sweet potatoes
  • 2 tsp ginger grated
  • 1/3 cup coriander leaves and stalks finely chopped, cilantro
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp heaped ground coriander
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 leaves kaffir lime
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbs buckwheat flour
  • oil for frying


  • Drain the soaking liquid from the cashews and place in a high-speed blender with the water, lime zest, juice and salt. Blend until smooth and creamy. Decant into a small jar or bottle and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Use a food processor or hand grater to grate the sweet potato. Place in a large bowl along with the ginger, cumin, coriander and salt. Remove the stem from the kaffir lime leaves and chop finely. Add to the sweet potato mixture.
  • Lightly beat the eggs and add to the sweet potato mixture along with the buckwheat flour and mix until well combined.
  • Heat a large saucepan over a medium heat, add the oil, and add spoonfuls of the mixture. Press down with a spatula and fry until the edges start to turn golden, around 3 minutes. Flip and fry until golden on the other side. Drain on paper towel.
  • Serve with your favourite salad leaves and a drizzle of the lime cashew cream.
