1/2 cup pancake mix (hotto cake mix in Japan )
1 egg, beaten
50 cc ice water

3. Pour salad oil in a thick pot up to 5 cm depth. Heat the oil to 170 to 180 degrees.

Before deep-frying, stir the heated oil with large chopsticks. That will even up the temperature.

4. Wipe the moisture off the sweet potato sticks with a paper towel. Dip them in the batter and deep-fry.

5. Deep-fry them. Make sure the temperature is not too high. Sweet potatoes will burn before they are cooked.

Deep-fry them.

Place the deep-fried sticks upright on a paper towel for 1 minute. So that you can drain off the oil well.
