Purple Sweet Potato Ang Ku Kueh

My family love to eat Ang Ku Kueh. This time I am using Mung Bean Paste instead of Peanut Paste. Overall I still prefer the Mung Bean Paste. I love the colour of these Purple Sweet Potato and the colour turn out vibrant after steaming. Am keeping some for prayer tomorrow. I liked the texture of this AKK too and mum said it taste much better than those she bought from the market. Guess I will be busy making this AKK whenever there is prayer occassion.

Cecilia, the tray that you used on the 1st photo has become like an "antique" now. My mum used to have one, much bigger than this but after moving house, I don't know whether she is still keeping with her. By the way, love your purple AKK! I have also marked down in my list for a long time but still haven't taken action. said...
