Purple Sweet Potato Cakes

Purple Sweet Potato Cakes
  • 1 pound purple sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons lukewarm water, or more as needed
  • 1 cup glutinous rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed


  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add sweet potatoes, cover, and steam until tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Mash sweet potatoes in a bowl using a potato masher. Let cool, about 10 minutes.
  3. Mix water into the rice flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until a pliable dough forms. Divide dough into walnut-sized balls.
  4. Roll out balls of dough into thin rounds on a flat work surface. Drop spoonfuls of mashed sweet potato onto half of the rounds. Cover with remaining rounds. Press edges together to form little cakes.
  5. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook cakes in batches until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
