“From the NZ restaurant Kai in the City (a restaurant based on traditional and contemporary Maori kai combined with the best of international cuisine). With purple kumara you may need to add about 1/2 cup of milk to soften the purée. However, if you use golden kumara, which are more moist, you may not need to add any milk.”
