How to cook

  • 1. Peel the sweet potatoes thinly (leaving some skin in places) and cut them into small pieces, 5 mm square x 7-8 cm. Put water in a bowl, soak the sweet potatoes so that they are completely soaked, and open the bowl in a colander. Peel the carrots thinly and cut them into 2-3 cm pieces, shorter than the sweet potatoes. Cut leek into 7-8 cm lengths.

  • 2. Add all ingredients except 1 and water to a bowl and mix until the batter feels like it clings to the ingredients.

  • 3. Heat oil in a pan to a depth of at least 3 cm.

  • 4. Using a wooden scoop, scoop out the filling and shape it horizontally into the shape of a crab. When the sweet smell of the sweet potatoes comes out and the whole mixture is golden brown, it is ready to be deep-fried. Place them upright on a baking sheet and let the oil drain off.
