Nostalgic Snacks: Old School Tapioca Kueh

Old School Tapioca Kueh 
My grandma grew her own tapioca on her small farm. Every now and then, she would dig out some tapioca to make yummy treats for her grandchildren.

She would come up with many ways to cook the tapioca. We had boiled tapioca with shredded coconut and gula melaka. Sometimes, she would grate the tapioca to steam a tapioca cake. Then she cut the tapioca kueh into pieces and roll them in shredded coconut. Viola! It is another tasty snack.

Pan-fried Tapioca Kueh
Whenever there was leftover tapioca cake, she would cut them into squares and pan-fried them into crispy, golden brown snacks.

Missing my childhood days in a kampung. Glad that I could find tapioca even though I live in a bustling city. Cook this old school tapioca kueh for my family 😋😋
