Bubur Cha Cha

Yam was on offer and the sales lady told me it is nice.  Then I suddenly had a craving for Bubur Cha Cha.  You might wonder how so when I don't like coconut.  Well, though I don't really like the coconut taste but I do love the ingredients in it.  Sweet potatoes, yam and this little tapioca cubes that I adores the most.

Though those tapioca cube is easily bought but I prefer to make them myself.   Also to ensure no preservative in them.  Unfortunately mom is out of town and I lost this blog post.  

Luckily, after a search, I found I have a hard copy in my hard disk.  Phew .... I was able to make them right away.

Now I am happy.

What you need:

300g yam (skinned and cubed)
150g yellow sweet potatoes (skinned and cubed)
150g purple sweet potatoes (skinned and cubed)
2 litres coconut milk
100 g sugar (according to taste)
15 pcs pandan leaves
1 cup of water

For the coloured dough

100g Tapioca flour
¼ cup boiling water
food colouring


Steam yam, sweet potatoes till semi soft.

Put tapioca flour in a large mixing bowl. Pour in boiling water. Mixed it with a spoon till it is well blended.

Microwave for 1 min. Add in food colouring. 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 aside.

In a large pot, add pandan leaves and water. Bring to boil and then add in sugar.

Once sugar dissolved, add yam, sweet potatoes.

Follow by coconut milk. Bring to a slight boil and add in coloured dough.

Serve either cold or hot.
