2 cups glutinous rice flour
1 cups steamed taro, mashed finely
3 cups coconut milk
cup coconut cream
1 teaspoons salt
cup sugar
1 cup water


Mix the flour, taro and water together and knead until the dough is firm. Roll the dough into small balls about 1 cm in diameter. Continue until the dough is used up.

Bring water to the boil over medium heat, put in the balls, and boil until they float to the surface, remove and soak in cold water.

Mix the coconut cream and teaspoon of salt together, set aside. Pour the coconut milk into a pot and place over low heat. Add sugar and the remaining salt, stir constantly to prevent the liquid from boiling.

When the mixture is hot, put in the cooked taro pearls. Cook until the mixture begins to boil, then add the prepared coconut cream. Allow to boil once again, then remove from the heat. Spoon into a dessert bowl and top with some coconut cream. Best when served hot.
