  1. What is your instagram account?

  2. I have not come across any cassava or ubi kaya in the tamu here. we used to steam it and add some sugar or salt. Adding palm sugar will sure add more flavour to it.

  3. grandma used to make this for me when I was young...seeing this makes me drool and brings back sweet memories :) thanks Sonia for sharing the recipe !
