Do you know "umukuji tempura"?
"Umukuji" is the local way to say "imokuzu".
It is a fried dish typical of Okinawa, made with imokuzu (sweet potato starch) and purple sweet potatoes.
Its soft and chewy texture, its fragrance of purple sweet potato, and its sweetness make it a real delicacy.
In Okinawa, this is a local specialty popular as a snack among children and adults, regardless of age.
