2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, white sugar, brown sugar, curry powder and cumin.

3. Make a well in the center, and pour in eggs and milk. Stir until all of the dry ingredients have been absorbed.

4. Stir in sweet potatoes.

5. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drop the potato mixture by spoonfuls into the oil, and flatten with the back of the spoon.
