In a separate bowl add in the flour, sweet potatoes, baking powder, sugar, oil and mix well. Make a well in the centre. Pour in the yeast mixture and mix lightly. Bit by bit pour in the water, mix and work it into a dough. Knead dough for about 20min and leave aside for 1hour, or till bloated/doubled in size.
