Cek Mek Molek
recipe source: WendyinKK
(I make half of this recipe. i get 8 cek mek moleks)

500gm of steamed sweet potatoes
100gm plain flour
coarse grain sugar for filling
oil for frying

1. While the sweet potatoes were hot, mash them fine and add in the flour. (i steamed my sweet potatoes with skin on and peeled off after it is cooked. Then mash them fine with a fork and add in flour) You may not need all or you may need more. Just add until a pliable dough is formed.
2.Divide dough into equal pieces (30gm each).
3.Lightly dust hands with flour and flatten each piece of dough. Fill with one tsp sugar. Seal up and make it into an oblong shape with pointy ends. Repeat until all the dough is filled and formed.
4.Deep fry the cek mek on MEDIUM heat until a crust forms on the outside. Drain and let it cool down before serving.

*Take note that white sweet potatoes are drier and might need less flour.
** I used the mixer to mash the hot sweet potatoes
*** Fry it soon after you've done forming. Don't wait too long because the sugar will melt upon contact with the moisture from the dough.
