Purple sweet potatoes tarts


 Saw some purple sweet potatoes in the fridge. So I did some experimenting and made some purple sweet potatoes tarts. I used the same method as making Aunee and fry the purple sweet potatoes with 1 tbsp of lard. Not too bad for my experimenting and decided to post this recipe in my blog.
