This sweet treat is similar to the Peranakan kueh ondeh ondeh. Sweet purple potato paste is wrapped around nian gao and steamed to create the chewy and fragrant bites – so pretty and so delectable!
- Nian gao, cut into 7 g cubes
- 150 g purple sweet potato, skinned, boiled and cut into small pieces
- Fresh shredded coconut
Cut nian gao into cubes, about 7 g per cube.
Skin purple sweet potato and boil till soft before mashing into a paste. (to make it faster, blend in a blender 1 min)
Wrap nian gao cubes in purple sweet potato paste.
Steam in oven for 5 mins.
Remove from oven and coat with fresh shredded coconut immediately.
