Orh Ni – 芋泥

Our version of Orh Ni is smooth, creamy and delicious. The secret ingredient to this texture is by using pork lard to make the paste super smooth with that silk-like creaminess. The lard also gives this dish the fragrance that other ingredients are unable to provide!

We added in mashed pumpkin and gingko nuts for that awesome pairing, and finish it off by adding coconut cream. It’s super easy to make, and definitely a family favourite – for us the perfect CNY dessert!
