Kamote Cue is a Filipino snack dish made with deep fried sweet potatoes coated in hardened melted sugar
Kamote Cue, Camote cue or Sweet Potato Fritters is a very popular snack food / street food in the Philippines; it is made out of deep fried Sweet Potatoes/Kumara coated with caramelized brown sugar. The word came from combining two words Kamote (Sweet Potato) and Cue (to skewer), similar to barbecue and banana cue that’s why during the past this was served in bamboo skewers but they started to serve it now like french fries where sweet potatoes are sliced like chunky style potatoes and is placed in brown paper bag.
A very delicious street snack that I guess will be easily enjoyed by everyone specially those who have that sweet tooth.
Heat oil in wok, add sweet potatoes and brown sugar. Deep fry in medium heat until sugar caramelizes, once the sugar melts add the salt then give it a good mix so that the sweet potato pieces will be coated with the melted sugar.
Using a slotted spoon, remove sweet potato pieces, place in skewers then let it cool in a wire rack before serving.
