Creamy Ube Haleya2017-11-22
1 kilo ube (purple yam tuber)
250 g white sugar
750 ml coconut milk
250 ml condensed milk
125 g butter
4-5 drops of ube food colouring (optional)
Wash and clean the ube under running water. Boil the ube with skin on, until tender. Let it cool and peel. Grate or mash with a fork. (I used the grater.) In a heavy pan, combine the coconut milk, sugar, and grated ube.
Mix and then add the condensed milk and butter. Add food colouring, if desired. Cook over a low to medium heat while stirring continuously until the mixture holds together and starts separating from the pan.
Transfer to butter-greased ramekins or moulds and allow to cool. Serve. *Note: This mixture could last for about 5 - 7 days. Ensure that it is cooled at room temperature prior to refrigerating.
