For this weeks ‘Friday Foods’ we check out how to make a quick and easy potato snack called ‘matang’!
– A few sweet potatoes (depending on how much you want to make!)
– Vegetable oil
– Sesame seeds
Step 1: Peel and wash the sweet potatoes.
Step 2: Dry the sweet potatoes.
Step 3: Cut the sweet potatoes into bitesize chunks.
Step 4: Grab a wok/frying pan and use as much oil as you would need in order to cover the sweet potatoes. Heat the oil first, then add the sweet potatoes.
Step 5: Cook for 6-10 minutes over medium heat, until golden brown.
Step 6: Take the potatoes out, and set aside.
Step 7: In a big frying pan, add one tablespoon of oil and spread around the pan evenly over low-medium heat.
Step 8: Sprinkle 1/4 cup of sugar evenly over the oil, turning it up to medium heat for a few minutes until the sugar starts to melt and basically caramelise.
Step 9: Turn down the heat to low-medium and simmer for 5-7 minutes.
Step 10: When the sugar is golden brown, add the potatoes, tossing/mixing until they are coated in the syrup.
Step 11: Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
Step 12: Transfer to a plate and let them cool, letting the syrup harden/become solid, and then you’re good to go!
