  1. Looks fantastic, Nam! Can't wait to try it! However, I will skip the sugar in the recipe! I hope it wouldn't ruin the taste! Can you please explain which cuisine this recipe is from?

    Thanks again!

  2. Hellllo There...

    Oh well this is my mum's original recipe. I can say it's a cross or Indian and Malay cuisine.

    As for the sugar don't worry. You can substitute the plain yogurt with flavoured yogurt eg. Passionfruit or Strawberry. So the sweetness of the fruit blends in well. :)

    Yuuum... Let me know how it turns out.
