One cloudy afternoon I went to my nephew’s school to fetch him. I was a bit early so I decided to sit around and watch all the kids going by. I saw this one kid eating something that looked like french fries. But at a closer view it was covered in what seemed like caramel. That was when I realized that it was the Kamote (Sweet Potato) Fries sold at the canteen.
Unluckily for me, they were all out when I decided to buy some while waiting. So I decided to make my own version. Here is my version:
Kamote (Sweet Potato)
1) Peel sweet potatoes and cut into strips.
2) Deep fry sweet potatoes for 2-3 minutes or until golden.
3) Dry fried sweet potatoes on a paper towel.
4) Roll on to brown sugar.
5) Fry again until sugar caramelizes. (TIP: Add additional sugar in the oil to ensure a good coat of caramelized sugar.)
And now we have our very own Kamote (Sweet Potato) Fries! I’m hooked (too bad I’m on a diet)! Try it now!
(Sorry for the blurry pic! I didn’t realize it was blurry up until I published this post. It was too late to retake the pic, the fries were long gone! Hehe
