Sweet Potato Doughnut @ Kuih Keria


Kuih keria or sweet potato doughnut is one of the many local tradisional snacks in Malaysia. It is usually served at breakfast as well at tea time. Its simple and yet delicious. I prefer coating the doughnuts with icing sugar instead of sugar syrup.


Ingredients

500gm of sweet potato( I used the purplish colored sweet potato)
1 cup of wheat flour
salt to tast
Icing sugar for dusting

Method

Wash the sweet potatoes and boil with some salt.
Once soft, remove from water and remove skin. Mashed it soft while still hot. Leave aside to cool.
Once cooled, mix together with flour, knead well.
Take a small portion, round it and make a hole in the centre.
Heat a wok. Fry the doughnuts till golden brown, remove and mix well with icing sugar.
Serve
