This is an excellent dessert to make as there's no limit to what you can do with it. The ingredients below are just an example of what you can put in it. My favorite is when the Sago (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sago) and purple yam are added into the mix and of course the brown sugar as well.
Sticky rice balls in coconut milk
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 35 mins
Total time: 40 mins
2 cups Sticky rice flour
2-3 cups water
2 can coconut milk/cream
11/2 cup tapioca pearls, cooked
¾ cup sugar
1 big sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 plantain bananas ( or 1 big), peeled and cubed
1½ cup jack fruit, sliced
Prepare the sticky rice balls by adding 1 cup of water to 2 cups glutinous rice flour. Mix with a fork until it forms a dough. Scoop about half a spoon of the dough and form them into balls using your palms. Set them aside.
In a pot, combine 2 cups water, coconut milk and sugar and bring to boil. Add the sweet potato cubes and cook for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally. If using uncooked tapioca pearls you may also add it at this point. Next add the plantain banana cubes and cook for about 3-5 minutes.
Once the sweet potatoes and bananas are almost cooked, add the sticky rice balls one at a time and let simmer until they are cooked (about 5-8 minutes) while stirring occasionally. You know the sticky balls are done when they are floating.
Add the jack fruit slices (if using cooked tapioca pearls, add it at this point). Let simmer for another 3-5 minutes or until all fruits are tender and cooked.
Serve hot or cold.
