The earth is often as warm as a blanket at night which makes it comfortable until morning. Sometimes, the earth becomes freezing cold which even makes the feeling stiff.

I don't know, sometimes the coldness actually comes from our own feelings. Suddenly there comes a gloomy mood, making us overcome with cold sadness. As a woman, there are times when I feel sad like that. The term is too sensitive during my period. When that happened, my mood dropped drastically.

STEP 4

Shape the dough into balls. Don't be too small, or too big so they can cook at the same time.

STEP 5

Bring the water to a boil with vanilla or pandan leaves, then add the sweet potato balls. Cook until the balls are cooked. The characteristics of cooked balls are balls that float to the surface of the water.

STEP 7

Next step is cooking brown sugar sauce. Cook brown sugar with white sugar, water, and salt. After everything is well mixed, add all the sweet potato balls. Stir briefly, then add about 4 tablespoons of tapioca flour solution.

Serve while warm. Drizzle with thick coconut milk sauce that has been boiled with salt previously. The combination of sweet and savory complements the warmth of a bowl of chewy sweet potato balls.

I often make this sweet dish for my family. Incidentally, my partner also really likes sweet potato balls doused with brown sugar sauce. Have you ever tried making balls from tubers mixed with the tapioca flour?

Kolak biji salak! I'm so impressed that you made it on your own.
The last time I made it (actually my mom made it and I was just a helper hehe) was a long, long time ago. I never make it by myself coz I'm too lazy to do all the steps. 😅

I have never seen sweet potatoes made into balls for a recipe.

I love sweet potatoes and many times around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, there are various dishes for candied sweet potatoes or sweet potato casseroles where the cooked sweet potatoes are baked with simple combinations of ingredients that always includes brown sugar. They just seem like they should be together. I am imagining this dish having a similar flavor and it is true that it is a very comforting food.

I love the way this looks in the bowl. Once again you have made the photos become food art.
