Sweet Potato Balls
Sweet Potato Balls is a childhood snack my mom used to make for us when we were kids. It's just a simple recipe using simple ingredients. The ones my mom made were a bit softer and would deflate after cooling. I did a little modification to her recipe and added 1 tbsp of plain flour so that the sweet potato balls will hold it's shape after cooling. Having this snack brought back a lot of wonderful childhood memories.
Ingredients: 500 gms steam sweet potatoes
60gms tapioca flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp plain flour
Method: Mash the sweet potatoes whilst hot then add in the sugar to combined.
Add the tapioca flour and plain flour.
Mix into a dough and shape into 20 gms balls.
Heat up 2 cups of oil and fry the balls over medium fire until golden brown.
Cool before serving.
