Bola Obbi 1
Happy Ramadhan… Wish a joyous Ramadhan for all of you who celebrate it :D. Here is my post, still, the continuity of Purple Sweet Potato Balls post. The following trial to use up purple sweet potato stock in home and is still using the same style, balls :D. But for this time, the ball is bigger than before, using fruit in it, and fried instead of steamed. The recipe is from old Nova magazine. What I like best from this post was its shot session, I used a green leaf as a prop. Refreshing for my eyes and I just love the color combination the photos resulted – little bit dark but merry :D. Oh yeah, I think this Obbi Balls are also a good snack for your Iftar time :D.
