Purple Sweet Potato Balls 1
I made this traditional snack when I was home loooooong…. time ago. Fortunately, it was a harvest time for sweet potato crops. Wow, what an abundant sweet potatoes we had at that time. One constant way that my grandma or my aunt to do with the crop is steaming them then enjoying them when they are still warm. Yea, that way, all the time. What a boring thing, isn’t it? So, I tried to make so fun with the purple sweet potatoes. I made it into little balls, filled it with grated palm sugar, and coated it with fresh shredded coconut. Looks like Klepon, but it doesn’t have extra additions such as glutinous rice flour and sugar for the dough. The potatoes bring their own flour and sweets. The pictures of this traditional snack are also the first photos I take with my new digital camera, Bleki, do you still remember the story ha? :D
