Boiled Tapioca














I
woke up this morning and it is cold compared to the other day. The coldness have brought me to the memory of boiled tapioca or in Malay,Ubi Kayu Rebus or in Sarawakian Malay, it is better known as Bandung rebus. There are two ways to serve the boiled tapioca. First would be the ground chillies with shrimp paste and salted fish, and the second one is, coconut sugar with grated coconut. In the pictures, which I grabbed from other bloggers ( thanks!), there is no salted fish and it is white sugar ( I recommend coconut sugar if you want to try this dish). I like the first one because it is hot. Mrgrammarindahouse would prefer the second option (he is a "sweet" man :)). Boiled tapioca and its side dishes (hot or sweet, your choice) are best served with hot coffee. Not a latte or cappucino or espresso, just a simple black coffee. The right time to enjoy this food is when the weather is so cold (like this morning) and a bit showery (can you imagine the coldness and the yummy boiled tapioca, blend together, heaven!!). To people in Kuching, Malaysia, fyi, there is a cafe serving this dish for breakfast. D'wannie Cafe is situated in Astana road, in MARA building. But the taste of boiled tapioca in this cafe is no challenge to my mom's ( how I wish my mom is here!!). Now, tell me where can I find salted fish in Birmingham?
