3. Coat the drained sweet potato and lotus root slices in katakuriko. Let them sit a while until the katakuriko blends in.
4. Deep fry the ingredients in oil heated to 160℃. Since they tend to stick, it's best to fry them a little at a time.
5. Allow them to cool down once deep fried. Put all seasoning ingredients marked with a *into a frying pan and simmer.
6. Although it's already tasty at this stage, add sweet potatoes, lotus root, and chicken to the frying pan and coat in sauce.
