Sweet potatoes – I have used the purple variety today.
Wash, boil / pressure cook and peel the sweet potatoes. If using pressure cooker, 2 whistles is enough.
Mash using a fork
Add fresh shredded coconut.
Add a little sugar if you have a sweet tooth.

You can eat it as such or make them into balls. This is highly perishable so consume it as soon as it is made.
