Black Sesame Angku Kuih ~ 黑芝麻龟糕



I was a bit apprenhensive at the onset when I  chose to use yam paste as the filling for this Black Sesame Angku Kuih.  Just wondering how will the taste of yam combine with the black sesame.  But if I don't experiment, I wouldn't know.  Come what may, I tried and  wasn't disappointed at all when the Kuih were freshly steamed and the first bite said it all ...... yummy!
