潮州芋泥 Teochew Yam Paste


Being a Teochew, I have little exposure towards our heritage. Sadly, my understanding of the language is only limited to listening comprehension but not of spoken and lacking also extends towards my exposure to Teochew food. 
作为潮州人的我,对于一切潮州的传统习俗都很生疏。就连潮州的语言也只会听而不会讲,同时对潮州菜肴的了解也不多。


Teochew yam paste only came into my awareness in my early twenties when I was working in Singapore. Since then I have been reminiscing about this yummy Teochew dessert but hardly found it anywhere.  Recently I came across this simple and yet yummy recipe from a local newspaper clippings and set about to make it on my own. As it turns out, the yam is so creamy and smooth just like what I remembered.
对于潮州芋泥的认识是在我20多年前在新加坡就职时品尝到才获知的。当我回马来西亚后都无法遇到贩卖这项美味的潮州甜品处,而对这芋泥地念念不忘。一直到最近从报章上遇上了这道食谱才决定自己亲自下手来做。制做出来的芋泥正如我所怀念般地润滑填满了甜香的浓芋口味。
