Kamote Cue Recipe
- 1 lb sweet potato sliced crosswise about 1.5 cm thick (Asian sweet potato is preferred)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup cooking oil
- Heat the pan and sip the cooking oil.
- Leave the cooking oil warm-up, then toss in the brown sugar.
- Once the brown sugar starts floating, insert in the sweet potato and stir for 7 to 12 minutes.
- Flip the potato now and then to allow the sugar to stick.
- Move the potato from the pan one by the other.
- You may directly skew the fried potatoes once removed from the pan.
- Please leave it to cool down for a couple of minutes, then serve.
Word of Advice: Do not drain on paper towels; hence the sugar will stick to them, and you’ll lose a nice coating.
Rather, let the oil drip as you scoop the sweet potatoes out and place on a plate that allows cooling until the caramel hardens about 2 minutes. Thread onto skewers and serve warm.
Share and Enjoy.
