I have seen and tasted purple sweet potato before, but this ubi badak is definitely different. Ubi badak is popular in Kelantan, the state where I live now. People sell these everywhere, and they say ubi badak will develop fast and big during rainy season that we are experiencing now. The price is RM3 per kilo. The other day I bought two, the purple and the white one from nearby pasar borong. On colour alone, the purple ubi badak is very appertizing.

The colour is definitely exciting and it matches well with the taste.
Has anybody tried ubi badak before?
