There are still some leftover sweet potatoes lying beautifully in my kitchen after making the swirl bread , i have to quickly look for another recipe to make something out of them before they turn bad ,actually the fastest way i think is to cook them with porridge but i didnt want porridge on that day and i made some fried sweet potato balls. I managed to get one recipe from rasamalaysia.com website , it's very simple to make and very very nice. Again, i halved the recipe cos i didnt want to end up making a large batch of them , i forgot to take note how many did it come out but it should be around 30 balls of the usual size. I steamed the sweet potatoes insted of boilng them before mashing, whichever way, it works just as fine.
1 lb of sweet potatoes
12 tbsp all purpose flour
31/2 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp sesame seeds ( i omitted this )
1. Boil the sweet potatoes for 15mins or until soft and mash them. Peel the skin off the sweet potatoes and discard.
2.Combine them with flour, sugar and just enough water to form a soft dough in texture but not too sticky.( if you still find it sticky, it's okay to flour your plams but not so much on the dough, it will affect the texture of the dough.
3.Divide dough into small equal portions and roll them into balls. Coat the ball with some sesame seeds.
4.Deep fry them until golden brown. Dish out and drain well before serving.
