Or nee (Teochew Yam Paste)

    My love for or nee (mashed yam) didn’t go all the way back to the 80′s or 90′s. I was first introduced this decadent dessert by the husband. In fact, lots of dishes/food were introduced by hb, eg ; mee rebus, mee siam, kueh tutu, mutton, beef, duck etc (yupyup, u read right! i never had these food before i was 19. I was not keen to try them at all before that). Being a teochew (the husband), this dessert is well loved by his whole family. The first time I had it? Hmmmm.. probably at a teochew restaurant. Mil does it beautifully too… but er, I can do without the shallot oil though! Heee :P So, yeah.. mine is definitely a modern and healthier take towards this traditional and well loved dessert but that’s because i fancy the dessert like this – no frying, no shallots oil :)
