yes..used to cook this very often during my early marriage days. Now its been at least 14 years never cooked it. Becoz of the coconut milk..has very high cholestrol and hubby cannot eat.


Recipe yields for 4 persons
Ingredients:
300g yam(cut into cubes)
200g sweet potato(cut into cubes)
200g tapioca (cut into cubes)
2 litres coconut milk(fresh or canned ones)
1 tbsp salt
150 g sugar(more or less according to taste)
10 pcs pandan leaves

Method:
1. In a large pot, add pandan leaves, coconut milk to boil.
2. Once it starts boiling, add yam, tapioca and sweet potatoes cubes.
3. Simmer over medium heat for 30 mins.
4. Add salt to stir first.
5. Then add sugar.
6. Turn fire to low and simmer for a further 15 mins.

Notes:
Serve hot or cold.
Optional to add are Sago pearls.
My mom likes to add cornstarch into this to make it a bit more starchy.

extra notes:
Cold Storage sells Bo Bo Cha Cha ingredients for S$2.90 a pack. It has Cubed Sweet potatoes, yam, tapioca cubes, 3 pcs Pandan leaves. You need to buy coconut milk to add.

Some hawkers put in pieces of 'flour/dough' which are chewy into the bo bo cha cha. Anyone knows what those are and how to make them?

that is just tapioca flour mixed with hot water to make into a dough. the many colours you see is just colouring added. After the dough is form, just roll and cut into cubes. And cook with the bobo cha cha. Wink

Actually, I would suggest that you steam the yam and sweet potato separately. Then bring the coconut milk, pandan leaves and sugar to a boil or until sugar is dissolved. Then add in your colour starch or sago and the steamed yam/sweet potato. Give it a quite boil and turn off fire. If you simmer the coconut milk for too long, the oil from the coconut will come out.

you should cook the sago separately. once its cook, then add to the bobo cha cha during the cooking process. so it absorbs the flavour.
