Hey, did not know that this is so simple to make. The only work is grating the tapioca but it is fun using the grater, or else makes use of the blender. The tapioca is quite cheap about S$1 for 1kg when I bought two days ago. Peeling the tapioca is easy too, just made a slice lengthwise and the bark can be easily peeled off. Food colouring is optional for a healthy choice. Use desiccated coconut if freshly grated coconut is unavailable.
Preparation: 15 mins, Cooking time: 20 mins
Ingredients (makes 6)
° 300g tapioca (weight after peeled), grated
° 90g sugar, or to taste
° 150ml water
° ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
° food colouring (optional)
° 75g-100g fresh grated coconut
° a pinch of salt
1. Combine the grated tapioca, sugar, water, vanilla essence and food colouring in a mixing bowl. Mix well.
2. Grease a tin with oil and pour in the mixture. Steam for 20 minutes and leaves to cool prior to cutting.
3. Mix the grated coconut with a pinch of salt in a plate. Ensure that the steamed tapioca kueh are evenly coated with grated coconut.
