Sweet Potato Mini Angku Kueh

Sweet Potato Mini Angku Kueh
I was busy with making these Sweet Potato Mini Angku Kueh sometime ago. It is half the normal size of angku kueh. Verdict is: next time should make the pastry thicker a bit with less filling so to fit in the mini mold. I love to bite on the chewy soft pastry more than the mung bean filling! Lol! The Angku kueh pastry remained soft on the second day. 

Using previous recipe yield 59 pieces. Sweet Potato Mini Angku Kueh
