Let's do My Cha Cha

Thursday, November 08, 2007

I've improvised the recipe according to our taste. I always love this dessert. Mum used to cook them when we were very young. Today I cook it with mum's help. Later in the evening, Nat and Chris are coming over for dinner together with Cheryl. Try to spot the Pikachu mum made for Cheryl~ Oh yah, Ben is working today, I know I know, is DEEPAVALI, even his fellow indians colleagues are in the office "fighting bugs" but tomorrow will be their day off and Ben is going to be a NANNY to Cheryl.

300g yam (skinned and cubed)

300g orange sweet potatoes (skinned and cubed)

500mls coconut cream

100 g sugar (according to taste)

15 pcs pandan leaves

Many cups of water

For the coloured dough:

200g Tapioca flour

1/2 to 1 cup boiling waterfood colouring


Put tapioca flour in a large mixing bowl.

Pour in boiling water.

Mixed it with a spoon till it is well blended.

Separate the dough into two.

Add in food colouring for one dough.

Knead till dough is smooth.

Cut into bite size and drop them in a pot of boiling water.

Once it floats, it is done.

Set a side and make sure they are in cold water.

In a large pot, add pandan leaves and water.
