Deep Fried Purple Sweet Potato Balls
Frankly, I have not taken this for a long long time. There are actually a few versions of this kuih. Some is made with flour and some with wheat starch and some with glutinous rice flour and some even use baking powder. Still I enjoy the chewy texture of this kuih by using glutinous rice flour while the one with wheat starch is crispier. I'm not sure if this is a traditional kuih but this is definitely a keeper for me. Too bad that I've to go without the red bean paste filling. Otherwise, it sure a super winner.
400gm mashed purple sweet potato
200gm glutinous rice flour
2 tbsp tapioca flour
120gm fine sugar
3/4 tspn salt
