Chinese Candied Yams

Vegetables, also Vegetarian Foods

Chinese Candied Yams
Ingredients:
1 pound Chinese yams, peeled and sliced thinly
3 cups vegetable oil for deep-frying
1 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
Preparation:
1. Toss the yam slices in a little oil to keep them from sticking while heating the oil in a wok or deep pot.
2. Fry the yam slices until medium brown.
3. In a small pot, heat the sugar until it melts, turns light brown, and almost boils. Then dip the yam slices in it, one by one, and touch each one on one side to the sesame seeds. Lay them on paper towels, the side with the seeds up, and allow to dry for one hour or more, or serve them hot before they dry.
Note: They can be served hot or at room temperature, as desired.
