When we were little boys and girls
our grandmother
would come visit us from Sitiawan
with a big bag of 
deep fried yam cakes

All of us were so excited
   Each one of us would grab a piece
and soon our little fingers were covered with oil

I tried to make some
to bring back the sweet memory

First I need to bring the ingredients together
and steam 1/2 an hour until cooked
Let it cool down before
cutting into 1/2" thick rectangles
and finally deep fried

6 oz rice flour
2.5 oz green pea flour
44 oz water 
1 tsp salt
5 oz yam, diced
2 Tbsp dried shrimps, soaked & chopped
2 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp shallots
1 tsp 5 spice powder
1/2 chicken cube
salt & pepper to taste

1) soak flours in water & salt for 1-2 hours
2) heat oil and fry shallots until fragrant
3) add dried shrimp & yam, continue frying
4) add the rest of the ingredients & flavouring
5) pour in the soaked flours with liquid
6) continue stirring while cooking
7) when batter thickens, pour into a steaming tray
8) steam for 1/2 hour, let cool
9) cut into 1/2" thick 2"x3"rectangles
10) deep fried
11) serve with chilli sauce
