I found this recipe during my "learning to cook Thai" phase. I found a great little Thai market just a block from where I work. I was so intrigued by all the vegetables that I didn't recognize! I walked around and stared. Went home and did research looking for photos of Asian vegetables. Went back to the market and stared some more. Finally identified one of the items as cassava root (from which tapioca is made). I bought it and took it home...THEN started looking for recipes! I found that cassava is used mostly in desserts in Thailand, and finally found this recipe. I made it and became an instant cassava lover! I was actually drawn to it mostly by the lovely photo! Go here to see it, and to see where I got the recipe: http://wlteef.blogspot.com/2005/12/cassava-kueh.html The recipe is repeated here exactly as posted on the site where I got it, but I've added a few notes. The prep time will be shorter if you're not grating the cassava by hand, as I was.
