I was set to try again because for those who ate it before, all liked it. So I am curious to see whether this recipe will yield something that I like too.
Finding: This recipe is much better than the first one that I tried. The softness is good. At least it has some texture of chewiness to it. I chilled it for a while and it yield cooling effect as per description.
Now for those who ate this before, please let me know whether this is as close to the real stuff.
Next time, I might try other flavouring for future attempt or even reduce the water to yield a firmer texture.
Latest update: I finally found this. The texture is chewier than the below recipe. it doesn't has a cooling effect. The hint of banana is very mild but it has an artificial taste lingering on your tastebud.
It was selling at S$2/150g, do you think this is expensive?
What you need:
100g tapioca flour
120g fine sugar

Cut cake into bite size and coat with cooked potato flour.
