Sweet Potato Sticks

These are sugarless and healthy snack that uses the sweetness of sweet potato.
They're made of tempura flour, which already has baking powder and egg, so it's easy to make.

Ingredients: serves 4

Sweet potato
1 (200 g)
2 tablespoons
Tempura flour
150 g (1 1/2 cups)
30 g
a small amount


1. Wash the sweet potato, peel, cover in wrap and then microwave. Add 2 tablespoons of milk and mash.
2. Add the butter and tempura flour and mix until no longer powdery. If you leave the butter out at room temperature, it'll be easier to mix.
3. Roll out the dough to 2 mm thick. Shake salt all over. If you put the dough in a plastic bag and roll it out, it'll be easier.
4. Cut into 3 mm wide strips and bake in the oven at 180℃ for about 15 minutes. If cutting them thinly is too much work, then make crackers.
5. Line up leaving enough space in between, like when making cookies or cream puffs.
6. You can adjust the stiffness with the quantity of butter. If you prefer the end result to be softer, increase the amount of butter.
