Purple Sweet Potato Muah Chee (紫薯麻糍)

I was so excited when I saw some purple sweet potato at the supermarket. This is not commonly found unlike the orange-colored sweet potato. Without any hesitation, I bought some home. 

I put this to good use by making a small batch of Purple Sweet Potato Muah Chee to satisfy my craving for my favourite local snack. Of course, what you find at the local fare is the original flavour. You can hardly find the purple sweet potato variation. I like the subtle unique aroma of purple sweet potato in this muah chee. Find it rather special and love the colour too!
