Hello everyone! I am back with a new recipe on my blog! But sorry.. I am not sure if I should continue this cooking segment on my blog or stop, since some of you told me that these recipe posts are not relevant for a beauty blog. Well.. actually I still respect the main concept of this beauty blog, that is why I always share a new recipe only once in a month! But yeah.. I will probably start to share more healthy recipes with low calories next month, since one of my 2014 resolutions is to eat more healthy foods and avoid oily foods lol and I think healthy recipes are still related with beauty, eh?
So.. Goguma Mattang (고구마 맛탕) is the recipe of the month! Goguma Mattang is Korean caramelized sweet potatoes, which is so yummy! I heard it is a typical winter snack in Korea, but I could eat it whenever I want (even in a hot sunny day lol)
And oh, it tastes the best when you eat it immediately while it is still warm.
- 2 Medium sweet potatoes.
- 4 tbsp sugar.
- 2 tbsp water.
- Toasted sesame seeds.
- Oil for deep frying.
Peel the skin of sweet potatoes, and rinse them in cold water.
Soak the sweet potatoes in water for about 10 minutes, dry them with a paper towel,
and cut them into chunks.
Heat up the oil, and deep fry the sweet potatoes for 8 - 10 minutes until completely cooked.
Put them on the paper towel to drain the excess oil.
Add sugar in a pan, heat it up over low heat.
Don't stir it, and wait until the sugar melts..
After the sugar melts, it turns brown like in the photo below~
Add a little bit of water, please be careful because it is quite scary lol. And quickly stir it~
Add the fried sweet potatoes to the pan, and mix them gently~
Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top, you can also use black sesame seeds instead..
And you are done~!
I highly recommend you to eat them immediately while they are still hot. Usually I prefer to dip it into a glass of cold water for a few seconds to cool it down before I eat it lol
If you love sweet potatoes, you should try it! It is so delicious~
So, have you ever tried this Goguma Mattang??
Thanks for reading and have a lovely day ^^
