Steam Tapioca/Cassava Cake

I still have a packet of frozen tapioca in the freezer which I bought many months ago so decided to make some steam tapioca kueh. Is a very simple recipe which doesn't need too many ingredients.

Ingredients :

400 grm of grated Tapioca/cassava
100g Sugar
2 tbsp of corn starch
120 ml coconut milk
2 pandan leaves
Pinch Of Salt
1 cup fresh grated white Coconut + 1/4 tsp of salt

1. Steam grated white coconut with salt for about 5 minutes, then set aside to cool.
2. Squeeze any access liquid from the tapioca then mix the sugar, corn starch, coconut milk and a pinch of salt together. Mix well.
3. Grease a pan with some cooking oil, pour mixture in, lay the pandan leave on top and steam over medium heat for about 25 minutes or until its done.
4. Remove from heat, cool completely and remove the pandan leaves.
5. Cut to desire shape, coat with grated coconut and serve.

Nice of you to offer. Thanks. If we still can't find any locally,(folks here are not in the habit of using ovalet in their cake baking) it would be great if I could make a purchase the next time you get some from your trip home.

Can you buy grated tapioca at the supermarket? Or is it something you need to grate yourself?

Anonymous said...
