So many wonderful things you can do with ubi kayu! This baked kuih has great aroma, taste with a light bouncy and chewy texture. So easy to make, get the kids involved too.

One of the simplest kuih to make!

Serves 8 - 10 people

How finely you grate the tapioca will influence kuih texture. Grating it finely will result in a smoother kuih.

Use young tapioca for a more tender kuih.
