 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Sweet potato, shredded
  • 1 tb Cornstarch

Squeeze potato, by the handful, to eliminate liquid, then place in a bowl.

latticework over the bottom and at least halfway up the side. Fit second
sieve inside first. Heat oil to 350 degrees on a deep-frying thermometer,
place sieve in pan, and cook nest until light pumpkin color (about 3 or 4
minutes). Remove from oil and lift of top sieve. Loosen edge of nest with
tip of a sharp knife, then gently remove nest and drain on paper towels.
