Mek Comel

The orange sweet potatoes or the white potatoes are used to make kuih Cik Mek Molek. Cik Mek Molek (which means "pretty young lady") is a fried mashed sweet potato with sugary fillings in the inside. A word of caution though. Make sure not to eat while its still hot as the sugary filling will burn your mouth. It is eaten for breakfast or as an evening snack. Available at most hawker stalls, restaurants and at the district night markets.


300g sweet potatoes (boiled, peeled and mashed)
50g plain flour
50g granulated sugar
oil for deep frying
salt to taste

1) Mix the sweet potato with flour and salt into dough
2) Flatten a handful of dough using a tablespoon and place sugar and roll the dough into a rugby shaped and fry until yellowish.
3) Do not immediately eat the kuih although it has already cooled outside. The liquid sugar inside might still be searing hot.
