How to Make It
  1. Add the sweet potato to a large bowl. Add the ginger, spring onions, and nutmeg, then add a little of the egg, a drop at time, reserving plenty for coating, until the mixture binds together. Season well with salt and black pepper.
  2. Scoop up a handful of the mixture, roll into a ball, then flatten out into a cake. Repeat until all the mixture is used.
  3. Dust the cakes in flour, dip in the reserved egg, then lightly coat with polenta. Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan and add the cakes a couple at a time. Cook for 2–3 minutes or until the underside turns golden, then carefully flip and cook for another 2–3 minutes or until evenly golden brown. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing over.
