Daigaku Imo is a deep fried sweet potato, covered with syrup.
Usually we eat it as snack.
"Daigaku" means university or college, and "imo" means sweet potato in this case.
Origin of the name is that It were popular among the students.
Because it is cheap and high calorie.
We usually cut sweet potato into a bite size.
Deep-fry them in oil in low-heat.
And cover them with syrup which is made by simmering sugar in water ( sometime add soy sauce, mirin and so on) until it become sticky.
