Korean Candied Sweet Potato / Matang

450g Korean sweet potato ( yellow flesh )
5 cups vegetable oil
1/4 cup white sugar
black sesame seeds

Method :
1. Peel Korean sweet potato and rinse it in cold water and dry it with paper towel or cotton cloth.

2. Slice it into chunks , about 2 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick.

3. Put vegetable oil into a wok or frying pan and heat it up. Fry the chunks of the sweet potato over medium high heat for about 6-8 minutes until golden brown.


Make coating syrup:
1. In a thick bottom pan, add 1 tbsp vegetable oil spread the oil by moving the pan around.

2. Sprinkle white sugar on over the oil evenly .Heat it up over medium heat for a couple of minute . When the sugar starts melting, lower the heat and simmer about 7-8 minutes more, until the sugar turns into a golden-brownish syrup. ( Never stir the syrup with a spoon , spread it by moving your pan )

3. Lay out a non-stick sheet of baking parchment / aluminium foil .

4. Add the fried sweet potato to the syrup in the pan. Gently mix to coat the potato chunks in the syrup. ( Picture 1 )

5. Sprinkle some black sesame seeds over top.Transfer the potato to the parchment sheet. ( Leave a gap between each potato piece so that they don’t stick to each other ).  ( Picture 2 )

6. When the coating cools down and become solid , transfer to a serving bowl and serve .
