Recipe by Pinay0618

My sons have always been interested in learning of their Filipino heritage ... I am trying to collect recipes of all the foods my own mama made for my brother and I when we were small. This one is very simple, something she would make as a snack.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the sweet potato and slice into 1/2"-thick rounds.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium-sized saucepan; when it's hot, add the brown sugar to the oil. I know it's weird - but it works :).
  3. When the brown sugar floats, add the slice sweet potato and fry about 10 minutes, turning every once in a while to get the brown sugar all over the potato.
  4. When the potato is tender, remove from pan and let it cool off a few minutes - that sugar is HOT.
  5. You can serve this on a plate, or on a bamboo skewer.
