Thai fried sweet potato balls or known as kanom kai hong is a traditional Thai dessert dusted with confectioner's sugar. I serve them as it is as i found my sweet potatoes are sweet enough for me. This is an easy recipe yet delicious to the palate.
You can find this slightly sweet deep fried balls almost everywhere along the roadside of Thailand. Usually, limestone water added to the mashed sweet potato dough for crispiness. I couldn't find limestone water thus, i used baking soda which works perfect for the recipe. They are fried into golden and serve hot. This light,crispy and airy sweet potato balls make an ideal snack for tea.
