Kuih Keria (Fried Sweet Potato Donut)

Whenever I visit Malaysia restaurant in NYC that sell breakfast,I will definitely get some of their special local cake/kuih if it's still available on the display counter. Usually the kuih/cake gone before lunch time!! One of my favourite kuih is Kuih Keria!! Sometimes I'm quite disappointment when my favourite cake/kuih sold I vow to make this kuih myself..The verdict: This kuih is so easy and simple to make ,yet taste so delectable and savoury!!


500 gm yellow sweet potatoes (peel and boiled until tender soft)

1/2 cup all purpose flour (sieved),plus extra for dusting

1 tsp baking powder

enough oil for frying

Ingredients For Coating:

1/2 cup sugar

4 tbsp water


1:Peel and boiled sweet potatoes until soft tender.Mashed sweet potatoes and combine with flour and baking flour.If it's too dry,add in 1-2 tbsp water.
2:Knead the dough well ,use rolling pin to roll the dough out to 1 1/2 inch. Dusting some flour on the surface if necessary,then use donut cutter or round cookies cutter to cut the dough shape out.If you use cookies cutter to cut the outer round shape,then use icing pipping tip to cut the hole out.
3: Prepare oil in fryer at medium heat,deep fry sweet potato rings rill golden brown.Dish and drain.

Method For Coating:
