  1. Hope you are feeling better and will recover soon. This is something similar to the cekodok, the ones we make from bananas. Using sweet potato is a great change and lovely it looks.

  18. I love this dish! I make it couple time and my family loves it SO much. I found that using uncooked sweet potato would ease me in shaping the dough into a ball. Even without sugar powder this dish is great with a cup of hot tea :)
