Purple Sweet Potato Crackers



Don'cha love the bright purple colour of these crackers? They're made from the ever popular Japanese purple sweet potatoes which have recently invaded Malaysia's vegetable stalls. Babe in the City has a picture of the potatoes which she used to make tong sui with.

An enterprising person decided to make them into crackers which we got from the wet market. All we did was deep fry them to get these lovely and crunchy crackers. They are extremely nice with a bit of a sweet taste - very moreish. Definitely my favourite cracker now which I am savouring at the moment.

If you wish to try them out, we got the crackers from the Seapark Market vegetable seller at the corner i.e. the one that is nearer to the florist. It seems these are home made and get sold out quite fast hence it may not be readily available.

Cath - they are nice and you get huge pieces also to satisfy your urge for a cracker.

Chen - I guess Penang may not have them yet. You may have to make your own.
