♥ Sweet Potato Mochi Cake ♥



During the Chinese New Year, our family would make sweet potato soup with tang yuan (glutinous dumplings), sweet Teochew kueh with mungbean filling, coconut pudding and turnip cake. So what left behind are some sweet potato and mushy mung bean. 



I decide to use these ingredients and make a Chinese treat similar to my popular steamed pumpkin mochi. Instead, these are pan-fried and drizzled with osmanthus honey.


This Chinese treat is perfect in any occasion. And I assume healthy too because all the sweetness is coming from the sweet potatoes. You may adjust by adding more sugar, or I would suggest serving with honey syrup.

You'll need:
3 medium size sweet potatoes
3 heaping tbsp glutinous rice flour
1 tbsp Natvia
1/2 cup mung bean filling
A little water, optional
Vegetable oil, for frying

How to make sweet potato mochi cake:
  1. Steam sweet potato over medium-high heat until soft. Discard the water and peel off the skin.
  2. In a large bowl, mash sweet potato with Natvia to sweeten. Add glutinous rice flour and knead into a dough. Add water if needed.
  3. Divide the dough into equal portion, around 5. Flatten each and spoon mung bean filling. Seal tightly and roll into flatten disc shape.
  4. Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan. Place cakes spacing apart from each other. Cook over medium-high heat until lightly golden brown and cooked through.
  5. Serve hot with osmanthus honey.
With all my love <3
