Sweet and Simple - Bubur Cha Cha
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:
BUBUR CHA CHA
5 cups coconut milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
