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!
