Sweet Potato Mattang 고구마 맛탕

Hey guys, I'm kinda busy today but I really wanted to post, So it is just going to be a short post and recipe.

Today it will be mattang, which is a sweet potato dessert.

1 Sweet potato
1 Potato
150g of sugar
Some Hazelnuts and Walnuts

1. Peel and cut the potatoes in to chunks, similar in size to roast potatoes is about right. To cook steaming is best and for about 10 minutes is fine (In South Korea, Mattang in commonly deep fried).

2. Once you have steamed the potatoes fry in a small bit of oil for a couple of minutes. In a small pan, melt 150g of sugar on a medium heat so it becomes a syrup and then add the nuts.

3. You have a choice with the syrup, you can add this to the pan and mix all together or I prefer to serve on a plate and pour the syrup on top. Cooking altogether will give you sweeter potatoes, once its all cooked eat warm so the syrup doesn't go hard.

This is a very simple dessert that can be eaten all year around, and it is enjoyed by everyone, especially younger children.

This is it for today, I'll try and come back with another recipe tomorrow ^^
