DIRECTIONS

  • Place the sweet potatoes in a large, heavy-bottomed pot and cover with water. Set the pot over a medium flame and simmer until cooked all the way through, around 8-12 minutes.
  • Drain the cooked sweet potatoes and mash them or put them through a ricer.
  • Return the potatoes to the pot and cook over very low heat, stirring constantly, for another 5-6 minutes, until they begin to dry out. Remove the potatoes from heat and allow to cool.
  • Beat in all the remaining ingredients except for oil until smooth.
  • Add more flour if the batter is too moist to hold its shape on a spoon.
  • Heat the oil in a deep fryer or large skillet to 350-360°F.
  • Drop large spoonfuls of batter into the oil and brown on both sides, turning occasionally.
  • Remove to a plate lined with paper towels and finish with the remaining batter.
  • Serve with a sambal or sriracha chile sauce.
