Today, I am going to share with you all, my own unique, delicious, eggless, oil-free, vegan Nyonya Kuih recipe.

So, remember this name, Purple Coconut Yam Kuih. My new unique recipe with the main ingredients of purple sweet potato and yam.

Remember, this kuih is preservative-free and wrapped in a layer of fresh grated coconuts, so you must finish them at the same day of “creation”.
