Recipe Notes

Ube Halaya Recipe, I used a fresh ube that I bought from the market. For those who are using uncooked purple yam, simply boil and mash them before proceeding with the steps.
You can top both recipes with either coconut flakes or latik.
To make coconut flakes, just the toast desiccated coconut stirring frequently in a pan until golden brown.
To make a latik, simmer 1 can of coconut milk in a saucepan until it reduces to oil. Solids will form at the top surface and continue to simmer until these solids turns to golden brown. This is the latik.
