what you will need:
1 1/4 kg sweet potatos (750 gram after peeling & cooking)
2 teaspoons soya sauce
3/4 cup (100 gram) flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly minced black pepper
butter for frying
to the chives sauce:
3/4 cup of chives stalks chopped
250 gram sour cream
salt & freshly minced black pepper
peel the sweet potatos and chop to large pieces.
cook in a pot with water (or vaporize) until it’s
put the sweet potatos in a strainer for 1-2 hours
to separate the liquids apart. (you can also put
it for the night in the fridge).
move the sweet potatos into a bowl,
add the soya sauce and mix- knead with the hands.
add the flour, sugar, salt and pepper and keep
mixing it gently with your hands.
(remove hard/black pieces) the dough
should be soft, homogeneous and a little bit sticky.
if the dough is too liquid – add a little bit more flour.
avoid mixing it for too long since it can become
just mix the sour cream with the chives, and spice
it with salt and freshly minced black pepper.
warm some butter on a non-stick frying pan,
and put the fritters on the frying pan with a
spoon or wet hands.
the dough is a little bit hard to work with at first
since it’s soft and sticky, but you get used to it.
fry both of the sides till they become golden but
not burned, and that they will be solid enough
so you can get it out with a spatula.
put on a blotting paper and serve with
the sauce on the side.
– if you don’t want to eat immidiatly, you can
cook the fritters in the oven first in a pre-heated
oven in 180 C. and before you eat, fry them.
-you can’t warm these fritters in the microwave.
