Our all time favourite prepared by my mom filled with 101% loving heart and patience. She prefer soft and gooey yam which are stir together (till it mashed) with the flour mixtures before steaming.
The above tray of yam cake from the hot wok caught my attention when I wanted to have my breakfast. Immediately, I took out my hand phone and captured this photo. It looks pale and unpalatable right...but once you had a bite, you would fall in love with this staple instantly!

cut spring onions and red chillies (optional)
