Let’s Start making Sweet Potato Smiley!
First of all, wash the sweet potato and peel its skin. Then, wrap it with aluminum foil and roast in in the microwave or oven for some minutes. Put it aside in a large bowl, and mashed it until it is smooth. Now, let’s start to add the spices. Add a pinch of salt to the dough. If you like to be a bit hot, add the chili powder to it and mix it well. Then, add the garlic powder and the chopped cilantro. Last, but not least, add the flour or root powder, little by little and mix it until it is smooth.
Make the smiley face by divide the dough into smaller smooth balls. Then, flat each ball so it turns to be a disc shape. Use the straw to make two eyes, and use the tip of the spoon to create a smile in its face.
Preheat the oven into 180c. Arrange the dough in the tray and bake it for 30 minutes. Arrange it nicely in the plate, and it is ready to serve!
