DIRECTIONS

  • Heat 2 inches of oil in a heavy saucepan or fryer to 375 degrees. Grate the sweet potatoes into medium-sized bowl, cover them with boiling water, and let them stand for 15 minutes.
  • Drain off the water and slowly add the remaining ingredients, stirring to make sure that they are well mixed. You should have a thickish paste that will hold its shape when picked up in a tablespoon. If the mixture is too thick, add a bit of warm water. If it is too thin, add a bit more flour.
  • Drop the mixture, a few tablespoons at a time, into the hot oil and cook the fritters for 3 to 5 minutes, or until they float to the surface, turning them once to make sure that they are slightly browned on each side.
  • Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot.
