This dessert is a regional specialty made from a purple yam called rasavalli, which grows on the Jaffna Peninsula. When Bamini made this I was a bit sceptical because of its unusual violet colour, but the flavours were surprisingly delicate and it tasted divine. Bamini obviously thought so too, as I caught her licking the wooden spoon!
