Gosh....I missed Indonesian dessert so badly!! It's been long time I never go back to Indonesia, and it means, the last time I ate Indonesian dessert was 3 yrs ago......heezzz.... Since I arrived Seattle, I can't really find a good Indonesian Restaurant. Yeaaa...there is some of Indonesian Restaurant at downtown, but not all Indonesian dessert that I want sold by them, and it's pretty expensive, also a bit far from my home. So the only way I can enjoy it at my own kitchen, means I have to make it by myself which is I have to search, find or ask my sister in law for the recipe. As you know, when I was in Indonesia, I never make any Indonesian dessert such as onde-onde, ketan item, biji salak or kacang telor.
When I woke up this morning, my mind kept thinking of Indo's dessert, and after I looked around my kitchen drawer, my choice fell on biji salak *yea of course, the only ingredient I have for Indo's dessert is yam (ubi)*. The right choice cos my hubby loved it so much. It tasted sweet on the soup and chewy on the biji salak (but I reduced the sugar, cos both of us dislike it too sweet).
So, here it is Biji Salak from Belzy's Kitchen. Enjoy! :)
4 pieces yam
150 gram tapioca flour (you can use corn flour as well)
1/2 tsp salt
250 gram palm sugar
200 cc coconut milk (I used Kara)
2 sheets pandanus leave
1 ltr water
Steam yam until soft (you can use pressure cooker), softened.
Mix yam and tapioca flour until thoroughly combined.
Make dough become a little round/ball form. Do it until the dough finish.
Boiled water, then add sugar, stir well. Add the yam balls one by one and boil until the ball floats.
Placed cooked biji salak in a bowl, then pour in coconut milk.
