Pandan Tapioca Pancake (4/26)

The unassuming pan-fried snack is made from grated tapioca or cassava, pandan juice and castor sugar. This traditional kueh is called Lempeng Ubi Kayu or ‘Cassava Plate’ in Malaysia and has been eaten since the Second World War. During that period when there was severe food shortage, sweet potatoes and tapioca were the main source of sustenance for many. Various dishes were concocted from these versatile crops, with the tapioca pancake being one of them.
