Making the batter: mix together flour, salt, turmeric, egg, beer and corn starch in a medium bowl. Set aside and let the batter sit for at least 30 minutes.

2

In a large pot, heat enough oil to deep fry fritters (recommend to fill the pot half way with oil)

3

When oil is ready, put half hand full of sweet potato into batter then carefully transfer the mixture to oil pot. Try to spread out sweet potato mixture into a nice round base for your fritter.

*** You can use a small bowl and transfer a small amount of batter into the bowl. Then add the desired amount of sweet potato, carefully coat sweet potato with batter with your hand or a spoon. After that, slowly transfer the whole mixture into hot oil. This method will eliminate as much batter as possible in the oil, also it will help to form a nice round base for fritter as well as prevent you from burning.

4

Use a sieve to pick up flour batter formed in the oil

5

Wait about 1 to 2 minutes or until the sweet potato base are bound together, then carefully put one shrimp on top.

6

When the base start to turn golden brown, use a spoon to turn the whole fritter upside down and fry for another 3-5 minutes

7

Then transfer the whole fritter to a pan lined with paper towel to absorb excess oil and cool down.

After 5 minutes, serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce. You can also garnish them with cilantro before serving.
