Made from the most humble ingredients, sweet potato balls are tasty treats for breakfast or afternoon tea. | rasamalaysia.com

Sweet potato balls (蕃薯旦) are sweet snacks found in Malaysia. Made from the most humble ingredients–sweet potatoes, flour, and sugar–they are tasty treats for breakfast or afternoon tea.

When I was growing up, my aunt would always make them at home, or she would buy them from the market. Back then in Penang, the best sweet potato balls were found in the morning market at Anson Road–a wet market that my aunt used to frequent while I was little. Sometimes, she would bring me along and I would watch the sweet patoto balls vendor happily rolled the dough into small balls and then deep fried them to golden brown. For a mere RM0.20 or so, I got myself ten sweet treats with great taste. I was always so cheery whenever I had them.

Sweet potato balls are very easy to make at home. I got 1 lb of sweet potatoes a few days ago and here is what I did.
