This classic Malaysian dessert, Bubur Cha Cha is always a hit in our gatherings. The aroma of pandan leaves and coconut cream will get you hooked. I like putting all kinds of sweet potatoes, together with black-eyed beans. The translucent tapioca pearls add an interesting texture in the coconut soup. This dessert can be served as hot or cold.

What I like the most about this traditional Malaysian dessert is its colourful presentation. Needless to mention that its taste is wonderfully good because it’s made with fragrant sweet coconut soup, delicious sweet potatoes and tapioca pearls (sago pearls).

This dessert is so popular around the world and many new variations have been created. Some Malaysians like to add bananas and black-eyed beans into this dessert as well. It can be served hot or cold. I prefer to enjoy when it’s still warm.
