Sweet Potato Snack

A quick and easy snack with only 3 ingredients:

1 small sweet potato ( chopped into small dice)

1/4 – 1/2 cup flour

Around 1/4 cup water

1. Cut 1 small sweet potato into small dice. The smaller they are, it will be easier for them to be cooked.

2. Place sweet potato into a bowl. Add in 1/4 cup flour (maybe a little more).

3. Pour in water. Just to let sweet potato be coated with batter.

4. Brush pan with oil. Add spoonful batter into the pan. Fry till both sides turn golden brown.

If you want it to taste more sweet, you can add extra sugar. Just because my sweet potato is sweet enough to me, so I skip the sugar.

Don’t cut the sweet potato into big pieces. You don’t want your snack taste burnt with sweet potato is still raw and hard.

Steamed Pumpkin Snack

When I was little, my parents made me eat pumpkin. But I really disliked pumpkin at that time. When I grow up, I fall in love with pumpkin. Just as what my sister always says, people change. :p
