- 1 lb
- sweet potato, sliced crosswise (orange flesh)
- 1 c
- palm sugar or brown sugar
- 1 c
- cooking oil suitable for deep frying, more as needed
- white sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)
1Heat the pan on MEDIUM-HIGH then pour in the oil.
2Add the brown sugar until it dissolves. If it seems like the brown sugar may start to burn, reduce heat!
3Carefully add the potato slices to the pan but do not crowd. (You'll need to fry the slices in batches.) Fry for about 5-10 minutes, turning the slices often to evenly brown and allow the sugar to adhere.
4Remove the sweet potato slices from the pan and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil and cool down a bit. Arrange the pieces onto bamboo skewers, garnish with sesame seeds and enjoy!
