Taro root (a tuber similar to potato in texture) and tapioca pearls (sabu dana) in a coconut milk and sugar is a very fashionable Chinese language dessert. Nachiket (my husband) just isn’t very keen on coconut and eats it solely when masked nicely. Since I used to be making this particularly for him, I made a decision to innovate.
