dessert yam

This is the first of many super backdated entries. Or Nee, or yam paste, is a traditional Teochew dessert. Just decided to make this for a get together session with my girl friends, as opposed to baking the usual cakes. The recipe listed here might be a bit off as I cannot remember most of it (made this in February).

Yam Paste

Ingredients:
Yam , cooking oil , sugar , ginkgo nuts , water , pumpkin
Yam
['yam']
cooking oil
['cooking oil']
sugar
['sugar']
ginkgo nuts
['ginkgo nuts']
water
['water']
pumpkin
['pumpkin']
Recipe:
Remove the shoots (or some call the "heart") from ginkgo nuts. Cook the ginkgo nuts in boiling water with sugar added. Lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes to soften and sweeten the ginkgo nuts.

Slice yam and steam till thoroughly cooked and soft. Mash yam. Heat cooking oil. Add in the mashed taro and continue to stir until the oil and taro are blended. Keep the heat low and continue to stir until the taro paste becomes smooth. Add sugar.

Slice pumpkin and steam till thoroughly cooked and soft. Mash pumpkin and mix with sugar.

Assemble portions of yam paste, pumpkin paste and ginkgo nuts. Serve.
