Sweet potatoes usually take time to bake, but grating them into a skillet cuts the cooking time substantially.
Place the sweet potatoes, Parmesan, chia or flax, cinnamon, garlic salt, baking powder and black pepper in a large bowl. Toss well. Add the eggs and mix well until a crumbly mixture forms.
Warm a large skillet over medium heat. Add a tablespoon of the oil. Using 2 forks, grab about ¼ cup of the sweet potato mixture with the forks and drop it into the skillet. Repeat until you have 6 mounds, spaced about 1-inch apart. Press the mounds down with a fork and cook 3 to 4 minutes until the cakes are well-browned. Flip and cook 3 minutes more. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining olive oil and batter.
For Vata: Add in 2 tsp chopped rosemary.

For Kapha: Add in ¼ tsp cayenne.
