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!

  1. Mix the rice flour, green pea flour and 300 ml water thoroughly.  Sieve the mixture into a pot.

  3. Once the mixture  starts to thicken, turn off  heat.  Pour mixture onto an oiled 8.1/2 inch square tin.

  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.
