Purple Sweet Potato Angkoo Kuih with Peanut Filling

The recipe from Sonia  and I saw Lena also made these.These angkoo kueh dough were very soft.I used ground peanuts for the filling, so tasty.
I made 1.5 of the recipe and got 30 pieces of angkoo kuih.

Ingredients:
Sweet Potato Dough:
450 gm purple sweet potatoes, cut into pieces
300 gm glutinous rice flour
11/2 tbsp rice flour
3 tbsp sugar
41/2 tbsp corn oil
270 ml water, I used 250 ml only

For filling:
300 gm ground peanut
130 gm icing sugar

*Mix ground peanut and icing sugar, set aside for later use.

Method:
Steam sweet potatoes till soft, about 15 minutes.
Use a fork , mashed the cooked sweet potatoes.
Add in glutinous flour,rice flour, sugar and corn oil, slowly adding water to mix well till soft dough, keep aside and rest for 30 minutes.Difference sweet potato has difference texture, some soft and watery, do not add all the water at one go, slowly add and knead till a soft dough.If dough is too soft, then you may add more glutinous rice flour
Shape into 36 gm ball.

To shape and cook Angkoo kueh:
Grease the Angkoo kueh mould by brushing some corn oil.
Take the weighted dough, shape it into a bowl , place some mixed ground peanuts,pinch the edges, and shape into a ball.
Place the ball in the mould, press evenly, then knock out and place on greased banana leaf.
Arrange on steaming tray and steam for 10 minutes over high heats( I used medium heat)
Mix icing sugar and ground peanuts. I forgot to sieve the icing sugar.
Then , I used hand to mixed it.
Glutinous rice flour, sugar and rice flour.
Add the mixed flour to the mashed sweet potato.Mixed it.
Adding the water.
Knead to become a soft dough, set a side.
Shape the dough into a bowl pattern, add in the mixed ground peanuts.
Pinch the edges.
Shaped into a ball.
Place the ball in the mould and press evenly.
Knocked out and place on a greased banana leaf, and steam the angkoo kueh.
