Desmond Taylor says:

Simple and nice recipe ! 😀
I was wondering, may I add some fresh grated ginger root juice to the
syrup, to add some spicyness ? ;)

Halloosh Ghazal says:

Can I use the orange sweet potato?
Because I couldn’t find korean sweet potatoes. :(

I made this and some of my roommates tried it, one said that it is the only
way she likes sweet potatoes as of now (I used the orange sweet potatoes

I do sweet potato fries in the oven. Slice into strips, toss in a bit of
corn starch to help them get crunchy, then olive oil, salt, pepper and then
I use a bit of chili powder but that’s not needed. Hot oven 10 minutes,
flip and another 10.

Maangchi says:

Thank you for the recipe tip for sweet potato latte. You must be a very
creative cook! I can imagine how happy you were when you created the sweet
potato latte which tastes better than the one in a Korean coffee shop. But
they don’t add any coffee to the latte? : ) Anyway, please share your latte
recipe on my website. It sounds great! Check out “reader’s recipes” on the
forum on my website. Nice meeting you!

It’s supposed to be eaten cold – as candy. It tasted even better.

Bianca Turalija says:

I love these. They are sometimes served in our cafeteria. Maangchi, do you
make sweet potato lattes? They are available in almost all Korean coffee
shops. I tried to recreate one at home, and made even a better one. One
steamed sweet potato chopped, one cup of boiled milk, 1 tsp of vanilla
flavoured sugar. All combined in a blender and blended until smooth and
frothy! Heaven!!! I learned how to cook Korean from you, and the funny
thing is that my Korean girlfriends are learning from you, too.

I love how she’s aware that some of her viewers might be worried about
taking in too much oil. very thoughtful. “don’t worry the oil is still
here” 🙂 Thank you for your videos Maangchi. BTW, who takes your videos? 🙂

Joe Mama says:

NO FURTHER QUESTIONS!!! HAHA, but yea don’t mix the sugar otherwise it
won’t crystallize, it needs to sit there to turn into caramel 😉

it may not be as crispy as deep frying it

theklewerz says:

I actually made the Japanese version of this one XD a.k.a. Daigakuimo. I
will definitely try your method though 😀 One question though. I found this
caramel sugar in one of the supermarkets here, can I use it for matang or
hoddeok filling?
