Sweet potato Ball (bola bola ubi)

sweet potato ball

Another of Indonesian traditional dessert made from sweet potatoes. This time no frying required. As you may know, Asian people like deep-fried food. I don’t know why. What I know is that deep-fried food taste so GOOD! But one thing puzzled me, when I was still living in Jakarta, Indonesia, I ate deep-fried food almost everyday meal. But I hardly gain weight. Oh no, don’t tell me that it is because now I am married and have one boy. Look at my sister; she has one daughter and still crazy eating deep-fried food and she is still slim. Life is not fair! Ah ha… don’t take what I said personally ok! This is just an expression of being desperate of gaining weight when I eat too much frying food.

Anyway, this recipe is adapted from Sedap magazine.

Ingredients:
500 gram of sweet potatoes (steamed and mashed)
280 gram of tapioca flour
75 gram of granulated sugar
Salt

Ingredients for sprinkle:
200 gram of coconut flakes (I bought unsalted ready mix coconut flakes)
2 Bay Toey leaves (pandan leaves)
Salt

Sauce:
300 gram of plum sugar (shredded)
150 ml of water
2 Bay Toey leaves
Salt

sweet potato ball

Directions:

Steamed ingredients for sprinkle. Put aside

Mix sweet potato, tapioca flour,granulated sugar and salt. Form them like ping pong balls. Boil them in the water until those balls are floating.

Take them out from the boiling water then roll them in coconut flakes

Boil all the ingredient for sauce and stir constantly until thick.

Served sweet potato ball with sauce.

That is my treat for the day. The sun was shining so beautiful! Spent time with my son outside for the spring-cleaning. He loves to help me cleaning the yard but of course, it slows my time to complete the job as he keeps making a mess. I am not complaining though but rather feeling thankful that I have spent a quality time with him.

We had a similar dessert called Ondeh Ondeh but we stuff a piece of palm sugar in it and then coat it with coconut.

Life is not fair ? I agreed with you, some of my friends eat like a hippo (LOL) and still slim. My mom teased me and said I'm the kind of person who gains weight even drink water wow. Deep fried food tastes good for sure but even we don't gain weight from it, we shouldn't take oftenly for own sake of health. It's something everybody knows but it's really difficult to say 'NO' sometimes.
