These Malaysian sweet potato doughnuts known as 'Kueh Keria' make a great snack and are healthier that normal flour doughnuts.


Serves: 8 

  • 600g sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup (60g) plain flour
  • 60g tapioca flour
  • oil for deep frying
  • 1/2 cup (125g) caster sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Boil the sweet potatoes until tender. Remove from heat and peel the skin then mash.
  2. Add the flours a little at a time to the mashed potatoes and knead together to form a firm dough. Add a little water if it's too dry.
  3. Roll the dough on a floured flat surface into a long roll about 5 cm in diameter. Cut the roll into 12 pieces. Shape each piece into a round doughnut with a hole in the centre.
  4. Heat oil in wok until hot and deep fry the doughnuts. Drain on paper towel and set aside.
  5. Put sugar and water in a saucepan to make a thick syrup. Add doughnuts to the saucepan to glaze them completely with the syrup, remove and let cool.
