Sweet Potato Mochi Patties

Leslie made these and they were really ono. The recipe is from my sister Didi's second cookbook, Dd's Table Talk II (on page 285, for those who have the book).

4 c. sweet potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
1 1/2. mochiko
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/4 c. water
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 1/4 c. brown sugar
oil for frying

In a mixing bowl, combine flours, water and oil. Stir in potatoes and sugar. Mix well. Shape into patties. In a skillet over medium heat, brown in oil until browned on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Serves 8.

Hi Jalna...Do you know where I can buy a copy of both I & II cookbooks? I called B&N and both locations said they don't have it in stock.

Les...Don't worry about how the mochi patties came out. I'm sure it came out really good. I wish I was eating one at this moment. Wouldn't it be hard to make it a perfect shape when you had to fry it? Just curious.
