Couldnt be much simpler making these snacks. This tapioca parcels is one of the local delights coming from the state of Sabah, Malaysia. Not sure these delights originated from which ethnic groups in Sabah because there are so many. Probably this is also one of the quickest kuih/cake i have made in recent months. Made with simple ingredients and wrap in banana leaves, it is fragrant and very nice to eat. I read that some also eat this along with bananas. Most of the pictures i see in the internet are mostly made from yellow fleshed tapioca but i forgot to ask the seller and just grab one, so i can see that this is the white fleshed one. It is not very sweet, depends how sweet you can go, you can add another 2-3 tbsps of sugar into the mixture, can try tasting it during the mixing..
|just these ingredients...grated tapioca/ cassava, grated coconut and sugar|

|fold over the top and bottom part|
|then tuck in the ends of the sides..|
