Nangka Ji 椰絲糯米丸

The other day I saw this interesting recipe in Comfort Food Recipe Astro show. Look at the ingredients used, I know this will be a nice dessert as it has coconut and palm sugar aka Gula Melaka . Why is it called as Nangka Ji,  i guess the shape look like Jackfruit's seed , Nangka (Jackfruit in Hokkien) and Ji (seed in  Hokkien). Actually this dessert is made of glutinous rice ball that wrapped with coconut gula Melaka filling, then served with coconut thick paste.
