Yam balls: deep fried balls of sweetness 

These are simple snacks that offer a hint of sweetness. Despite being deep-fried, the outside should be dry and not oily. They're best when freshly made, with a soft but chewy interior and a crispy exterior. They often come with skewers, so that you don't burn your hands by touching their hot goodness.

These look great! Did you buy these locally or make them from the link given on your blog?

Ha! I wish I had the skill to make them. I purchased these ones in Taiwan. I've also found them locally, though. I've also seen them sold at cultural festivals, like the upcoming 626 Night Market (www.626nightmarket.com).
