This dessert called 'Bu loy phuok' in Thailand is taro and rice flour balls boiled in water then placed in a sweet coconut milk sauce to finish.
This recipe is so delicious and it is easy to make. My wife and I like it so much we make a double serve always. - 10 Jul 2011
I found the taro balls to be a bit stodgy and rather tasteless - really liked the sauce. If I was going to make it again, I'd add something else to the rice/taro mix - e.g. sultanas and maybe some lemon zest. - 13 Aug 2012
