Abacus seeds is one of the most iconic Hakka dishes. Often eaten during festivals, they are made by mixing mashed yam and tapioca flour which are then shaped into tiny balls resembling the beads on an abacus.
This dish is also known for its lovely chewy texture and beautiful yam fragrance. Add more yam if you like it softer!
We tried to follow the traditional Hakka way of preparing this, which includes stir frying them with minced meat and mushroom. Fried beancurd is also added for that extra texture!
This is definitely a wonderful recipe for festive seasons and gatherings!
