Bubur Cha Cha 摩摩喳喳


Just like to record this local dessert Bubur Cha Cha in my blog here. A easy and yummy dessert that my mom used to prepare for us when we were young.



 
When I was young, I always helped my mom on making this tapioca jelly. Nowadays we can buy ready Bubur cha cha from outside stall, but I still prefer made my own, so nostalgia!
I only changed one step from my mom's recipe, she used to steam the sweet potato and yam first then  only add into syrup water, but I made into simple way, cook the potato and yam together with water..


 
These tapioca jelly are chewy and smooth ^_^

Hi Sonia, our weather has plunged down & I feel so cold today that I have to turn on my heater again. This bowl of bubur cha cha comes just in time, haha. I will copy this recipe & try in the future. By the way, we love the choko & pumpkin soup that you shared earlier.
