These lacy, crispy sweet potato fritters are great for your afternoon tea! Yes, I love my afternoon tea ☕️. Be sure to cook them gently over medium heat so they cook through and crisp up without burning because I made this mistake the first time. 😊


  • 200 to 300 gram sweet potato, peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup corn flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 200 to 250ml water
  • 2 to 3 cup vegetable oil, for deep frying


  1. Combine the sweet potato, plain flour, corn flour, turmeric, baking powder, salt and mix well.
  2. Make a well in the centre and add the egg. Gradually add enough water, whisking constantly, to form a thick batter. Stir in the sweet potatoes.

3. Heat a wok or deep frying pan and add oil. Scoop spoonfuls of batter into the oil, forming fritters. Cook, turning halfway, for 2 to 3 minutes or until crispy and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Season with salt. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Bon appétit!
