Edith's Fried Sweet Potato Balls (蕃薯旦)

I have some sweet potato left and decided to turn these into my favourite, Fried Sweet Potato Balls (蕃薯旦).  Definitely brought back fond memories that I spent with my granny as a child during my school holiday.  

I missed her hugs and kisses so much.



What you need:

500g sweet potato
225g glutinous rice flour
10g corn flour
10g rice flour
170g castor sugar (adjust to your taste)
100ml water

Method:

Brush and clean sweet potato, cut into quarter and steam till soft. Scoop the flesh out and discard skin. Mashed while it is hot.

Add sugar. Mixed thoroughly.

Add in all the flours and water. Knead till it forms smooth dough.

Weigh about 14g each and roll into a ball.

Heat oil in wok and fry the balls to golden brown.

Cool and serve.



Cheers!
