    1. Peel the sweet potatoes and steam 20 minutes or until tender. Mash the potatoes and let cool a bit.
    2. Meanwhile, mix water into the rice flour until you have a kneadable dough.
    3. Divide the dough into small walnut-sized balls. Roll out to form thin rounds. Place a little mashed sweet potato on a round, top with another round and press the edges together to form filled cakes.
    4. Pan fry the cakes in olive oil until browned on both sides.
