Instructions

1
Visit your local grocery store!Mr. Mango (59 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217) has a lot of Asian ingredients not found in your typical bodega.
2
Combine warm water & sugar in a bowl.Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add the package of active dry yeast and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes.
3
Add the salt and flour. Mix well until it’s smooth. Cover and let sit for about 1 hour. The dough will double in size and puff out.
4
Boil a large pot of water. Soak chopped potatoes in cold water for about 5 minutes while water is heating up.
5
Drain potatoes and add to boiling water. Blanch for 2 min. Drain again & rinse in cold water to remove starch. Spread out on cotton towel or paper towel.
6
Put the potatoes into a bowl and mix with 2 tablespoons of flour.
7
Skewer the hot dogs on skewers or wooden chopsticks. Feel free to cut some of the hot dogs in half. Heat 4 in. of oil in a large frying pan to 320°F- 330°F.
8
Coat a hot dog skewer with the batter, turning the skewer around so it’s fully covered. You can use your hands to shape it a bit, if you need to!
9
Roll skewer in the potato bits & pack them into the batter w/ your hands, until they stick.
10
Then roll the hot dog skewer in the breadcrumbs until it’s completely covered before dropping it into the hot oil.
11
Fry for 6 to 7 minutes. Repeat with all of your hot dog skewers.
12
Leave on a metal rack or paper towels to cool off. Sprinkle with sugar if your heart desires 💛😋
