Does ubi stand for any yam, or is it more specific like ube (purple yam) in Tagalog?
I'm definitely not sure if ubi technically can refer to any type of yam, but I think most Indonesians would primarily associate it with the white variety rather than the purple.
But I might be wrong
What is Yams ??
Its is an edible root vegetable
I find it funny because in Latin "ubi" means "where"
My Indo gf says ubi can be cassava. Is that wrong?
Ubi can mean a yam or yam like thing such as a casava tuber (ubi kayu) sweet potato tuber (ubi manis), or even a taro tuber (ubi talas).
