Sweet and Simple - Bubur Cha Cha

bubur cha cha
Dear Readers,

Assalamualaikum and hello to all.

What better way to end a good meal than with a sweet dish. However during fasting month Muslims break their fast with liquid, dates or fruits and a sweet dish.I am sharing with you a dessert called Bubur Cha Cha; an all sweet potatoes in coconut milk plus other treasures like corn,sago,yam/taro and ripe jack fruit. Of course the main ingredient is the 'tepung cha cha' or cha cha dough. It is made from simple coloured dried dough and. To use them we have to boil until they are soft but not too long. In northern Malay slang cha cha means a mixture of everything..and this sweet dish is certainly a mixture of everything.

Do try this simple sweet dish. As usual we can substitute coconut milk with milk or diluted cream or evaporated milk. It is alright if you couldn't get hold of "cha cha dough". The taste would still be awesome with sweet potatoes,corn,taro and sago or just plain sweet potatoes. Serve this sweet dish hot or cold as dessert or for your afternoon tea.

Lets watch the video.

Here's the recipe:



5 cups coconut milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 pandan leaf
1 cup cha cha (boiled)
1 cup sweet potato of various colours (cut into cubes and boiled)
1 cup yam/taro (cubed and boiled)
1 cup fresh corn
1 cup jack fruit (optional)
1/2 cup sago (boiled; this is a thickening agent; can be substituted with corn flour)


1) Pour the coconut milk into a pot.Add in sugar,sweet potatoes,yam,corn,sago,jack fruit,salt and pandan leaf.
2) Under medium heat slowly stir the bubur cha cha mixture until boiling.
3) Remove from stove and serve.

I hope you will try this colourful and interesting sweet dish/dessert.

  3. Hi Umi,
    I am always hungry and thirsty everytime I visit your 'delicious' blog.
    I have not eat Bubur Cha-Cha for many years, it would be great for buka puasa (fast breaking).

    About Bites, it would be much better if we take preventive actions like frequently cleaning our surroundings. Thanks for the tips.
