1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with paper towels.
2. In a small bowl, stir together yogurt and scallions. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

4. In a large skillet, heat about 1/2 inch of oil over medium to high heat. Drop heaping tablespoons of sweet potato mixture into oil. Press batter down in center with wooden spoon or spatula.
