Purple Potatoes with Sesame

You can use any sweet potato from white, orange or purple but I found purple to be the sweetest. I made this traditional Japanese snack.

Serves 2 Cook: 20 min

Ingredients

Purple potatoes 250g
Sesame oil 2 tbsp
Brown sugar 2 tbsp
Soy sauce 1 tbsp
Vinegar 1 tsp
Water 1 tbsp
Sesame seeds 1 tbsp

Method

1
Wash the potatoes with the skin on and chop into bitesize pieces. Soak in water for 10 minutes. Drain then pat dry and microwave for 5 minutes until cooked.
2
Put the sesame oil in a frying an on medium heat. Add the potatoes and brown evenly. When nicely crispy, remove excess oil from the pan with kitchen paper.
3
In the meantime, mix together the brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and water in a bowl. Turn the frying pan heat down to low and pour in the sauce. Turn up the heat and bring to the boil.
4
As it caramelises, mix with the potatoes well. Garnish with the sesame seeds and serve.

Tips & Note

Microwave the potatoes until they're really soft. If you use white or orange potatoes, add a bit more sugar as they are less sweet.
