Yam and Potato Pancakes

Yam and Potato Pancakes
(Makes about 8 pancakes)

You will need:
2 large young gold potatoes
1 medium yam 
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp freshly chopped dill 
1/4 tsp salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp pepper, or to taste
1 1/2 tbsp potato flour 
2-3 tbsp canola oil

1. Peel and grate potatoes and yam and place in a bowl. Add the egg, dill, salt and pepper and mix. Sprinkle with potato flour and mix well to combine. Form the potato mixture into eight flattened patties (about 3 inches across). Heat oil on medium heat in a large pan and add the cakes, working in batches if necessary. Cook the cakes until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. As an option, serve with chopped scallion and sour cream or low-fat plain yogurt.
