Welcome to Nicky’s Kitchen!

There are a few dishes that I could eat everyday and one of them is sweet potato. I had a craving over the weekend for some Korean street food so I whipped up a dish called “Mat-tang”. It’s basically deep fried sweet potatoes coated in toffee and only takes 15 minutes to make. Crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle…. Yum….

You can use either sweet potatoes or normal potatoes but I think sweet potato adds more flavour. I have seen some people making it with apples as well… Fried apples??  hmm, not sure…

I wonder who thought of this amazing dish. In Korea, they even have sweet potato cakes!! There is a store in the middle of Myung-dong in Seoul that has the best Mat-tang ever!! I must remember to take a picture of the store next time I am in Korea to share with everyone. I don’t think there is any store selling Mat-tang in Singapore… What’s  your favourite Korean street food?

I’ve just planted  two sweet potatoes in my little veggie patch a few days ago, hopefully they will produce enough sweet potatoes to feed my cravings! Any tips on growing sweet potatoes in Singapore? I heard that they grow like weeds…
