Seri Muka Keladi | Yam | Ube

I put a twist on traditional kuih Seri Muka which usually pair with pandan curd on top. In my recipe I changed it to Keladi or in English its a Yam, some people called it as Ube, a purple yam.

Keladi/Yam/Ube has always become my favourite asian dessert flavour. I have created so many dessert with this ingredient. It taste creamy and very tropical. In additional, Ube is very popular now in western and european. More foodies are falling in love with Yam/Ube. The glutinous rice with coconut cream is a perfect match, hence I make them to my own version of kuih Seri Muka.

Seri Muka literally mean Glowing Face. So please try this dessert for a naturally glowing face 😛
