a sweet potato experiment

sweet potato mochi
makes 5 mochi

  • 1 large sweet potato, mashed
  • 3 tbsp mung bean starch (potato starch or rice flour/mochiko would work as well)
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • water as needed (i think i used about half a cup)

easy instructions:
  1. mix all the things
  2. grab a small palmful of the mixture at a time. roll into a ball and press slightly to get a mochi shape. it helps if your hands are wet when you do this.
  3. cook in a pan with oil, about 1-2 minutes each side. then pour a little water (like 1/4 cup maybe) in the pan and cover. cook until the water is gone.
  4. eat all the things
