Lepat Purple Yam

This lepat yam is sweet.
1 packet grated Yam (frozen)
1 cup coconut flakes ( I use unsweetened flakes)
1/2 cup brown sugar
Some banana leaves

Mix all ingredients. Wrap filling in banana leaves that has been washed. Line it up in the steamer. Cook for 40 minutes.


  1. Zue, the purple yam colour is really nice. Are they the same like the Japanese sweet potato?

  2. Gert, I cannot compare yet coz I haven't taste the japanese sweet potato. This purple yam taste like "keladi". If you know what I mean.
