Purple Sweet Potato Balls in Green Bean Sweet Soup 紫薯丸子绿豆糖水

I made this dessert quite some times ago when my parent and sisters came to visit me in Singapore. My sister sent me a message.... 'Cook tong shui (aka sweet soup) for us...' , and that was a very last minute request. 

This was my first attempt making purple sweet potato balls. I followed a recipe that I found from google search, but the texture was totally out of what I wanted. Trial and error...I continued to modify the flour ratio to get the right texture that I wanted. A little springy but soft, just nice for the elderly (my parent). I'm happy that my parent and sisters gave me 8 thumbs up for this!  :)
