This is what Natasha had to say ” I keep buying sweet potatoes for the health benefits, and since I got fed up of having the same thing over and over again, got a recipe from the net. Definitely making it again. The original recipe called for potatoes in addition to sweet potatoes, and you need to add grated and roasted coconut and coriander leaves before shaping them. Skipped both because I don’t like too many clashing flavors.”
Here is her recipe:
Wash and scrub clean about 250 gms sweet potatoes, then boil till soft. Peel and mash.
Finely chop 4 pods of garlic and 2 green chilies.
Heat a bit of oil, add garlic and green chilies and fry for awhile. Pour over the mashed sweet potatoes.
Add 1 tsp soy sauce, juice of ½ lime, and salt to taste, and mix well.
Mould into small croquettes.
Dip the croquettes in sesame seeds and press down so they stick to the surface.
Shallow fry in butter till golden brown.
