My sister gave me this purple sweet potatoes. Last year I made Angkoo kuih with it. But this time I search for a different recipe.
And found this recipe from Hearts Aflutter with Desserts book.
I thought it will be so sweet, so I cut down the sugar.
And it turned out not so sweet.The very good thing is, my sister can enjoy it without worrying her sugar level. Yup, she got diabetes, my poor sister :(. Whenever I made dessert for her , I'll reduce the sugar , or I'll warn her about the sugar level.
Ok, I'll share this recipe, which I copied from the book.
300 gm sweet potato
300 gm coconut milk
300 gm water
200 gm sugar
220 tapioca starch
