Sweet Potato Balls

this was an additional dish we prepared for mid autumn festival celebration.

really simple to make and yummy at the same time :) i chanced upon this recipe on Rasa Malaysia. and later realised rasa malaysia provides many interesting recipes on their site. do go take a look!

kenny and kang rolling the dough into small balls, then later coating them with sesame seeds...

jessie and i was busy with the frying of the sweet potato balls. look! golden brown, yummy-looking sweet potato balls :) lots of the sesame seeds fell off during the deep-frying process..

Sweet Potato Balls
Taken from Rasa Malaysia.


1 lb of sweet potatoes
12 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
3 1/2 tablespoons of sugar
3 tablespoons of sesame seeds
Oil for deep frying


Boil the sweet potatoes for 15 minutes. Peel the skin of the sweet potatoes and discard. Smash the sweet potatoes and combine them with flour, sugar, and just enough water to form a smooth dough that is soft in texture but not sticky.

Divide dough into small, equal portions and roll them into balls. Coat the balls with some sesame seeds. Deep fry the sweet potato balls till golden brown. Dish out and drain well before serving.

hi my @ddictions,
thanks for dropping by :) the sweet potato balls are a little chewy on the inside but crunchy on the outside :) best eaten when it's still hot!
