1 big sweet potato, cut into pieces, steamed until soft and mashed
200g glutinous rice flour
pinch of salt
100ml water
1 tbsp tapioca flour
Filling for the ball:
100g grated gula melaka
Grating for the ball:
200g grated coconut (white part only) and a pinch of salt.Steam for 5 minutes and leave to cool. (This helps it to keep better and the grated coconut won't spoil so fast.)

Bring water, salt and tapioca flour to a boil over low heat. Keep stirring until almost transparent and sticky (texture a bit like glue.)

Pour the mixture immediately into the glutinous rice flour in a large mixing bowl. Stir till it is well absorbed. Add the mashed sweet potato and mix well to form a dough until the dough no longer sticks to your hand.

In a pot, boil the water until boiling. Roll the pieces of dough into small balls with your palms. Then flatten the ball and put a bit of the filling in the centre.

Seal the ball and roll again into round balls. Drop the balls into boiling water until they float to the surface (about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes). Then it's ready to be removed with a strainer.

Coat the round balls with grated coconut & it's ready....yippie

Remember...because it's made of coconut so to ensure freshness, it is better to prepare it in the morning, keep in a cool place and consume before end day.
