Crispy outside, soft inside! Usually, we deep fry the sweet potatoes but in this video I will show you how to make it in a frying pan! Quick, Easy, and Delicious 😋

We call this snack Daigakuimo (大学芋) literally “University Potatoes” in Japanese because it was popular among University students in 1900’s.

Candied Sweet Potatoes (Traditional Healthy Japanese Vegan Snacks Recipe)

Difficulty: VERY Easy
Time: 15 min
Number of servings: n/a

Ingredients:
400g (about 1lb) Japanese sweet potato
4 tbsp. sugar *regular white sugar, brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, etc… are ok
1/2 tsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. vinegar or lemon juice * interfering agent to prevent crystallization
2 tsp. toasted black sesame seeds
4 tbsp. cooking oil

Directions:
1. Wash the sweet potato with the skin, cut into bite-size pieces, soak in water for 5 minutes to remove starch and prevent stop oxidation (color change). Drain well and remove excess water with paper towels.
2. Place the sweet potatoes in a frying pan, add cooking oil, cover and cook on medium for 3 minutes. Flip them over, cover and cook another 3 minutes.
3. Insert a bamboo skewer to check if the potatoes are done. Remove the oil from the pan using paper towels. Add sugar, soy sauce, vinegar or lemon juice. When the sugar melts and coats the sweet potatoes, stop the heat and sprinkle with black sesame seeds.

    揚げなくていいっていうのはポイント高いですね。
    レンチンしてから焼き目をつける感じにすると時短になるかな?

    I love American candied sweet potatoes, so I am very excited to try this Daigakuimo. Adding black sesame seeds sounds so tasty! By the way, do you have any plans to release a second cookbook? 🙂

    I made the hokkaido potato mochi last week and I really loved it ^^
    Btw, how long can I keep nori sheets? as I don't use them very often they become softer and darker. I tried them like that and nothing wrong happened, but I'm not sure if I should use them after some time

    Would this recipe be good with Western sweet potatoes? Maybe it can work since they are also sweet!

    Would this work with regular salt instead of soy sauce? I'm allergic to soy.
