(Purple) Ondeh Ondeh / Onde Onde

    2 days ago at the wet market (have i mentioned that i love wet markets? i do, i do and i do!), i was merely trying my luck and asked the popo casually with zero expectation if purple sweet potato was available. Needless to say, we all know what her answer was aye? ;) Don’t you just love this Ondeh Ondeh’s colour?!?! I know i do. Very much. Initially, i only had 2-3 ideas in mind on what to do with my prized purple sweet potatoes, apart from roasting them. But right after i tweeted my thoughts out aloud — not knowing what to do with the potatoes, yet — my tweet tweet friends tweeted back almost immediately with some very fabulous ideas and this Ondeh Ondeh was one of them, courtesy of Ellie from Almost Bourdain. :)
