Also Known As:
Yam Taro Paste Orh Nee, Yam Paste, Taro Paste, Yam Taro Paste, Taro Yam Paste, Orh Nee, Or Nee



Average Price Per Serving:
SGD $2.50 - $5



Description:
Yam Taro Paste Orh Nee is a popular warm Teochew dessert that is often served during special occasions, such as birthday celebrations or weddings, as the final dish. Yam Taro Paste Orh Nee is never served chilled.


Yam Taro Paste Orh Nee is made with mashed yam / taro, sugar, water, oil and fried shallots. Some hawkers also add coconut milk for texture, and to smoothen the paste.

Yam Taro Paste Orh Nee is often garnished with boiled ginkgo nuts and steamed pumpkin puree. Sometimes, coconut milk is added as a topping for the Yam Taro Paste Orh Nee.

A good Yam Taro Paste Orh Nee should have a paste that is thick, but very smooth and without lumps. It should be light grey / purple in colour, with a slight fragrant aroma from the yam / taro. When consuming Yam Taro Paste Orh Nee, a glass of water or chinese tea should be on hand to wash it down.

While I like eating Yam Taro Paste Orh Nee, too much of it is very 'heaty' and sweet.

These are the top 3 stalls which I feel serve the best Yam Taro Paste Orh Nee in Singapore.
