Sweet Potato Balls Recipe
With a name like sweet potatoes, we already know this to be a treat! Though, this is one you don’t feel guilty about, so it’s even sweeter. Enjoy a taste like no other in these decadent delights. Just a few ingredients needed, which are all available at Massy Stores!
450 g (1lb) mashed sweet potatoes
1 tbsp butter
1 beaten egg
1 chopped onion
¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp flour
½ tsp chopped parsley
Milk to bind
- Peel and cube sweet potatoes. Place in a pan for 10 minutes until soft. Transfer to a large bowl and mash with a potato masher.
- Add flour, parsley, chopped onion, butter, egg, salt and milk to the mashed sweet potatoes. Mix with a spatula until a soft dough forms. If the dough is still a little wet, mix in some additional white rice flour. Dough should be soft but not sticky.
- Pinch a little dough from the bowl and roll between palms to form a 1-inch diameter ball. Repeat until all dough is used up.
- Fill a medium sized saucepan with 1 inch vegetable oil over medium low heat. Gently drop a few sweet potato balls into the hot oil. Fry for 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown. Sweet potato balls should float when cooked. Remove with tongs and drain on a metal strainer. Repeat until all sweet potato balls are cooked.
- Serve immediately.
