Kamote Cue is a typical Filipino Merienda or snacks that have been and still part of the street food culture, along with Banana Cue, Maruya, and Turon. It is simply Sweet Potatoes, deep fried with caramelized brown sugar then served on bamboo skewers. The reason for a Kamote Cue being on a skewer is that it is sold freshly cooked, therefore it is hot and skewers make it easier for customers to handle and eat because like what I mentioned, this is a street food.
In this recipe, I used Yams. Yams are sweeter and more tender than Sweet Potatoes, but of course, you can use whichever you’d like. Sweet Potatoes and Yams are very different in color. Yams have orange-red skin color while Sweet Potatoes have light yellow. The color of their meat are also different from one another. See the picture of the ones that I cutted up and placed in a bowl.
