Crunchy sweet potato fries

Ppottetto 뽀떼또

(The other recipe in this video is Matang)

This recipe is called “Ppottetto” (뽀떼또) and it’s Korean sweet potato fries, which are thinner and crunchier than french fries. When I was young, I used to buy this as an after school snack. I never thought about why it was called “ppottetto,” everyone just called it that. But now I realize the word came from the English word “potato!”
