Recipe by Jubes

A great veggie side for a roast or grill. Regular potatoes can be used for this dish or a mixture of kumara and potatoes

Great technique! You should try this. I'll even throw in a free potato peeler and parer and wait, if you respond in the next 10 seconds, you'll get a second set free! Made for A-NZ #51 recipe tag.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 500 g kumara, peeled and chopped (1 lb)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 teaspoon ground sea salt


  1. Add the peeled and chopped kumara to a saucepan of boiling water. Boil for 10 minutes, or until just tender. Drain.
  2. Heat the oil in a frypan. Add the sugar and stir over a low heat until lightly golden.
  3. Add the kumara in a single layer and cook until evenly coated with the glaze and heated through. Be as gentle as possibe when moving the kumara (this is to keep it looking in good shape). Shake the pan regularly to keep the kumara from sticking to the pan.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
