Yam Puff / Wu Kok

2009 Vanuatu, south pacific.  Port Villa Vegetable Market has plenty of beautiful yam available everyday.  and so i thought of making something with yam.  I saw this Yam Puff recipe quite interesting. so i gave it a try.

Result came out not bad at all.  However, my yam puff didn't look like the restaurant Yam puff so puffy, Still need a lot of practise or have to check other recipes to get my puff more puffy in the outside, something might be missing or my technic is wrong either way.   However, for the taste absolutely delicious!
