T aro~Yam is a versatile vegetable which has various derivative products after process. It can be roasted, fried, grilled, boiled and here I'm presenting a bundt cake made with steamed and smashed yam. Yes, I love yam served in any form and this tuber root is grown in semi-tropical and tropical climates all over the world. Taro is high in dietary fibre, rich in vitamins E and B6, also an excellent source of potassium, some calcium, magnesium, manganese and copper. This tuber is inedible raw and must be cooked through to leach out the calcium oxalate which is toxic. In addition, because of its low caloric content, this makes it an ideal food for those who are conscious of their waistline!

I overheard two ladies chatting at my usual market place and one of them said she recently made curry chicken with red apple and it was just delicious, The other lady looked at her in awe and so did I. I only heard that the apple which was used in lieu of the usual potatoes must be crunchy. Curiosity prompted me to experiment with this and here's my version of Curry chicken with Apple and sugarless Soymilk.

The highly nutritious purple sweet potato is the latest food item to be presented to the general public as a potential superfood. The colour is the important part as it is this purple colour which is responsible for the amount of anthocyanim in the potato. Anthocyanim which produces red, blue or purple colours in different types of food can also be found in blueberries, red grapes and red cabbage. However, the purple sweet potato has a higher concentration of the chemical than any other species of potatoes. This is effective for lowering hypertension and is one of the best foods that one can eat to prevent cancer.

This recipe is slightly different from my previous post of Orange cupcake. I added choc-chips to this cupcake and instead of using self-raising flour, I opted for plain flour. The reward was a soft and delicious cupcake filled with orange and choc-chips flavour.
