Kuih Keria

Kuih Keria is an Asian donuts, the main ingredient being the sweet potatoes. You may also find this snack selling in round shape balls on the streets of Thailand but in Malaysia, it's normally in the donut shape with sugar frostings. It is crunchy due to the sugar frosting and naturally sweet in the inside from the sweet potatoes.
Basically, you would boil the potatoes till soft, mashed them up and add to the flour to make the dough. Then you shaped it and deep fry it and set aside. You would then prepare your sugar frosting and coat them when ready. It is sheer heaven and a delightful afternoon tea snack. 
I have fond memories of these childhood snacks, best made at home or bought from some Malay stalls in Pasar Malam (nite food market). It is known as "Donut Kampung". Kampung meaning village. So yeah, it is traditionally Asian.
Here are the ingredients from Nyonya Cooking. Click on the link for demo. I would just double the ingredients for more servings. Trust me, it is so delicious that you will regret it, if you don't make more.
200g Sweet Potatoes
80g Wheat Flour
Pinch of Salt
200g Sugar
6Tbsp Water
Happy Eating!

Coconut Ice Cream

Homemade Coconut Icecream with Pandan Pancakes. Here is the recipe for a non cooked coconut icecream. Pancakes are just your basic buttermilk pancakes with pandan extracts for flavouring. The dressing is thick gula melaka aka cooked palm sugar syrup. It is commonly used in most Asian desserts.

2-3 cans of coconut milk
300 ml of full heavy cream - I added this for smoothness and creaminess
1 very tiny pinch of sea salt (optional)
1 1/2 cup of caster sugar
1 tablespoon of natural coconut essence (non alcohol) REMEMBER: Alcohol will not freeze!
**You can add any non alcoholic essence flavouring you like ** ie if you use rum and pineapple, it becomes a pina colada icecream!

1. Mix in Blender till smooth then transfer to churn in ice cream maker for best result.
2. If you don't have one, pour into container and put in freezer, then every hour, remove and whisk and put back in freezer. The idea is to put air into it, to make it light, less dense and repeat as required.
3. Eat your icecream smile emoticon Note: it can be served, with all kinds of toppings or desserts. I'm saving mine for pandan pancakes!
