Sweet Potato Balls 

I was first introduced to these yummy treats many years ago during my first visit to Taiwan 🇹🇼. After the trip, whenever we visit the Taiwanese cuisine restaurant, we order Sweet Potato Balls where it is available as it is indeed one of the favorite snacks that my eldest truly enjoyed.

Recently, I came across the recipe online on Sweet Potato Balls. Because the recipe were in Thai, I had gotten my good friend to help translate the ingredients. So using the recipe and adapting it a little, I managed to discover how easy it is to prepare these yummy treats at home 😍


  • 500gm sweet potatoes
  • 250gm topioca flour
  • 45gm self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 45gm brown sugar
  • 1 egg yoke
  • 100 ml of milk


  1. Skinned the potatoes and steam for 30 minutes
  2. Mashed the potatoes with a fork
  3. Add in the egg yoke and mix well
  4. In another bowl, mix topioca flour, self raising flour, baking powder and sugar together
  5. Blend in the mashed potatoes into the dried items
  6. Mix until fine crumbs
  7. Slowly incorporate the milk into the mixture until a smooth and elastic dough
  8. Roll into balls
  9. Heat up the oil until boiling hot
  10. Fried the balls until golden brown

    1. Thanks. The last time we been there was over 10 years ago. Missed your beautiful country. We hope to return again soon. Beautiful country with lovely culture and friendly people


      1. Taiwan has changed so much, one thing is still the same tho- great food everywhere you go and friendly people to help you out along the way. Let me know if you ever go back and need pointers on where to go, eat or have people show you around!

      2. Thanks for the offer. Yes heard of the changes. Some of the beautiful places we been last time is no longer in existence …. 😭 managed to see about 12 aboriginal during the last trip. We want to go back to do the remaining. Amazing country and each aboriginal are different in their way and culture


      3. I love the aboriginal culture as well. They are so amazing. It is pretty impressive that you’ve seen 12!! I would love to go live with them in the tribe for a while and learn their way of life… however a lot of them has forgotten their traditions… It’s sad
