Brown Sugar Kabacha Squash Dumplings in warm Coconut Milk.

Top Review by nott2339

This is a tasty recipe, though I will tweak it a bit next time I make it. I needed about 4 tablespoons of rice and tapioca flour before it started to hold together. Next time I will also add a little more sugar to the squash mixture. The coconut mixture is right on. I see lots of potential for this recipe in the future!
