One of our favorite desserts made with coconut milk, this treat is sweet and comforting. If you are able to, get fresh coconut milk as we’d recommend over the packets ones!
Sago and colored tapioca cubes give this dish both texture and a nice color contrast. For our recipe we are using 3 types of sweet potatoes and yam too. After steaming the sweet potatoes, add the purple ones only before serving as it tends to dye the coconut milk.
A really wholesome and simple recipe to make at home, great either hot or cold!
