  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

  • in a bowl mix together the cornstarch and water to make a slurry.
  • Dip the pieces of sweet potato into the slurry to coat them well. A ziploc bag works well for this too.
  • Heat your oil up in a deep fryer to 350 degrees or a frying pan is fine too.
  • cook the sweet potatoes putting them in the hot oil one by one so they do not stick together.
  • Remove when they just start to turn brown.
