taro is a plus. This dish is quite filling. So, don't be too greedy to overload your belly with all those yam especially for those who has gastric problem. hehe.... Cause yam/taro is considered as slow digesting food source. However, hope you guys will love it too. Enjoy & have a great week ahead everyone.
