Sweet Potato and Channa Nests

Ingredients

2 lb sweet potatoes
1½ - 2 oz butter or margarine
1 small onion
¼ pt milk
Salt and pepper to taste
½ pt channa, boiled
½ oz margarine for glaze
Egg yolk for glaze
Wirri-wirri peppers
Parsley

Preparation

  • Wash, peel and cook the sweet potatoes in boiling salted water.
  • Heat the milk and keep hot.
  • Drain the sweet potatoes in a colander. Sieve into a bowl with butter or margarine, and mix into a smooth texture using just enough milk to make a firm piping consistency.
  • Allow to cool.
For the Nests
  • Make round bases with about 1 tbsp of the mixture on a greased baking sheet, then, using a 3/8 in meringue star tube on an icing bag, pipe the mixture around the edges of the bases to form the nests (about 1½ in deep).
  • Place in a hot oven for 2 - 3 minutes to slightly harden the edges.
  • Remove from the oven and brush over with egg yolk. When ready to serve, fill with boiled channa which has been tossed in butter with chopped onion.
  • Heat through. Arrange on a flat dish and garnish with parsley and wirri-wirri pepper.
