Sesame Seeds - preferably blackI had only white ones
thick Sea Salt
In a Frying pan dry fry the Sesame seeds with the Salt till they start to get a light brown colore and they pop up. Keep aside
Heat the oil for Deep frying. Scrub the Sweet Potatoes well and cut them into bite size chunks ( don't peel the skin!). Once the oil is hot enough add in the Potato chunks.
In the mean while, grab a frying pan and add into it all the mentioned above ingredients for the caramelization. Keep it all on low fire and mix and stir all the ingredients well till it gets thicker.
The potatoes should be finnished cooked now, you can see that if they are swimming on top of the oil pan. Take them out and directly add them into the caramel combination. Mix it all well as long as it is still hot. Once it all cooles down it will get sticky hard. Just before that happens, sprinkle some of the toasted sesame salt on top to garnish.
