Steamed Purple Sweet Potato Kuih


This Steamed Purple Sweet Potao Kuih is my second attempt as the top layer was too thick on my first try.  So, this time around I decided to reduce the recipe for the top layer and it does look much better!  Taste wise, you may ask .... mmm, soft and not too sweet, good for breakfast or snack, any time of the day!












Recipe for Steamed Purple Sweet Potato Kuih

Method
  1. Mix the rice flour, green pea flour and 300 ml water thoroughly.  Sieve the mixture into a pot.
  2. Add in 480 ml water and sugar, keep stirring and cook on low heat.
  3. Once the mixture  starts to thicken, turn off  heat.  Pour mixture onto an oiled 8.1/2 inch square tin.
  4. Toss in the steamed sweet potato bits.  Steam on medium heat for 25 mins. or till the surface is a bit firm to the touch.

  3. Once the mixture starts to thicken, turn off heat.  Pour mixture onto the surface of the bottom layer.
  4. Cover with a piece of foil to prevent water from dripping onto the kuih.  Steam on medium heat for 35 to 40 mins.
  5. Remove from steamer and let kuih cool completely before cutting it up with a plastic knife.
  6. Serve.

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
