Again, simple & traditional Japanese sweets recipe. It’s called “imo-kenpi” and goes well with Japanese green tea. All you need is sweet potatoes, oil, sugar and water.
1. Prepare cold vegetable oil in a pot. Sliver sweet potatoes and put them in the pot immediately.
2. Heat the oil and deep-fry the sweet potatoes. Once they are well cooked, drain them on kitchen paper.
3. Heat sugar and water in a pan to make syrup (3-4 tbsp of sugar + the same amount of water). Put the sweet potatoes in it and mix them gently to coat with the syrup.
* I used purple sweet potatoes but any sweet potatoes will do.
