Boiled Cassava Root With Palm Sugar Syrup

This was last Friday morning. After morning walk, we drove to Menglembu for breakfast. Hubby ordered hor hee noodle. I walked over to the next shop to take a look at what they have at the bakery shop.

I bought this piece of garlic bread. I took half of it for breakfast.
I also bought this piece of curry puff to try and I had it for breakfast too. I like both the garlic bread and curry puff. Kept half the garlic bread for mid morning tea but by then it had soften and was no longer nice.
I also bought 2 polo buns for my neighbour who was on leave from work. Her feedback was that these polo buns are very nice.
These were what I ordered for breakfast that morning.
Toast and coffee for sharing.
Hubby wanted a small piece of butter to be added to the coffee.
A small piece will do because too much won't taste good.
Wild mushrooms growing in my flower pot.
Our friend has space to grow cassava or tapioca plants.
That afternoon, he called to inform that he has pulled out 1 plant and the roots were waiting to be collected.
I removed the skin from the cassava roots and took out a small portion to boiled with some salt and water. The rest I kept in the freezer for later use.
I love boiled cassava root with pure palm sugar syrup without any sugar added. I don't get to eat this often because my garden has no more space for growing tapioca plants.


But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure
and full of quiet gentleness. Then it is peace-loving and courteous.
It allows discussion and is willing to yield to others;
it is full of mercy and good deeds.
It is wholehearted and straightforward and sincere.
And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace
and reap a harvest of goodness.
(James 3:17-18, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. I never heard of mushrooms growing in a flower pot! will you eat them? Putting butter in your coffee is all the rage here now, I have not tried it yet though.

    1. Oh no, I wouldn't dare eat these wild mushrooms. My father used to put butter in his coffee too and that was many many years ago.

    1. Actually adding butter is not a new thing. The oldies had done it long, long time ago. Not it is not so popular maybe because people are more health conscious now.

  3. Often seen mushrooms growing where they shouldn't grow.
    Like the garlic bred, it looks very yummy.

    1. Sometimes there are wild mushrooms growing in my vegetable patch too. The coffee with butter is only nice when it is still hot or warm.

  4. Simple breakfast. The Chinese kopitiam style. I don't take coffee but know that there are few old coffee shops here serving coffee with butter.

  9. I love boiled tapioca with palm sugar - here, we have the gula apong, the nipah palm sugar, different from gula Melaka.

    I tried butter in black coffee at a place in Kuching - it was very nice.

    1. I love with grated coconut but lazy to go to the shop. Coffee with butter is only nice when the coffee is hot. I am not really a fan of butter in coffee, but don't mind having it once in a while and sharing it with hubby.

  16. Have not had this cassava root with gula melaka for ages, i think I have forgotten about this dessert. Yes, I like it very much too but must have palm sugar. I am not sure I will like coffee with butter but i remember it is very popular in Vietnam where ALL shops served it.

    1. If you add santan to it, it will taste much more delicious. You can even add freshly grated coconut too.

  19. My mama use to put a half a slice of butter in her coffee and the first time I saw that I said, "eeeeee-oooooooooo, gross"! Then she said to me, "Do you not dip your buttered toast in your coffee?", and I said, "Yes, I do, but...", and does the butter melt off your toast into your coffee, and do you not drink it?", and I said yes, BUT... And she said, "I rest my case"! She was one helleva smart lady my mama! Gosh, I miss her so very much!!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you!!!

    1. Very easy. To try, you just drop a small piece of butter into a hot cup of coffee.

    1. So far, this is the 2nd time we had butter in our coffee. I wouldn't want to drink it everyday.

  28. That butter was in the perfect time and place to be added to coffee! I've heard of it but never tried.

    1. Most coffee shops don't serve coffee with butter. Since they serve toast with butter and kaya separately, so we can add some of the butter to the coffee.
