Braised Pork Belly with Yam

Sokehah Cheah | 12:55 AM | | |



Cooked this Yam dish recently ...... the meat has assumed the colour of the yam, so it's pretty difficult to distinguish the meat from the yam pieces, but nonetheless,  this is a delicious dish, goes well with rice.









I love yam and can eat this on its own, more so if it's so creamy ........ Yummy!

    There's a Teochew dish something like this and it's sweet, think there's no meat, but creamy yam and it's a festive dish.

    Maybe it's got 'angin'. Perhaps too filling.
