Bubur Cha Cha (莫莫查查)

I cooked bubur cha cha (莫莫查查) on Saturday evening. Bubur Cha Cha is one of the popular Dessert or Tong Sui in Malaysia. (By the way, bubur cha cha has nothing to do with cha cha dance or mong cha cha.. or mc2 . This is my own "version" of bubur cha cha...(with banana as extra ingredient) a sweet concoction with sweet potato cubes, yam or taro cubes, thin slices of banana, sago pearl + Nestle Ideal evaporated milk (to substitute coconut milk or santan). I didn't put in pandan leaves (why? cos I don't have pandan leaves in the kitchen).. A simple and easy to prepare dessert. Nice to eat when served warm.

selba,
We can compare the food stuffs/dishes we have :) Your Hokkien Lo Mie is different from our Penang Loh Mee.

Jacky said...

I want I want. May I have a bowl please :D

Selba said...

Oh... actually there are 2 kind of Hokkien Lo Mie. THe one that I posted in my blog is the new version of Loh Mie and for the old version is the same as you described in my comment box :) Hmmm... maybe I should go to eat the old version one and take a picture of it, hehehe

carcar said...

wow, yummy! maybe i should cook some over this weekend, hehe...

did you 'steam' those food b4 u cook it? or all dump in together and boil? hehe...share your recipe lah...

Chen said...

jacky,
I would like to give u some too, but u r too late, cos we finished up the last drop already :)

Selba,
oh, okie :)
next time when u go to have the old version of Loh Mee, take a picture of it :D I haven't have Loh Mee for ages already.. I guess few years already :)

carcar,
I take the simplified way.. boil everything together... (except the banana and the sago pearl). The "soup" or "tong" will be tastier also this way.. The sago pearl I cook it separately. The banana I just sliced and put into the tong sui prior to serving :)

Bubur Cha Cha is one of my all time favourites ... there is a nice hawker stall in Seremban which only opens at night in one of the streets near the market and it is YUMMY ... ayo now I miss home and wanna some bubur cha cha now ... hehe

Chen said...

sbanboy,
bubur cha cha is easy to prepare. U can made some for yourself.. Can cook more and keep it in the fridge to eat the next day too :)

Shoshauna said...

Yum, banana!

Alicia said...

i like it cold :/

NBB said...

you are one of a healthy conscious doc. i don't mind putting the santan, but i try my best not to.

IML said...

Hmm....looks so delicious. Wish I could have a bowl now. Pisang rajah is the best banana for this dessert. Singapore's version has colourful chewy cubes which I find it strange.

Chen said...

shoshauna,
yeah.. banana :)

alicia,
I don't mind cold bubur cha cha, but I prefer it warm :)

nurul,
I haven't use santan for long time liao.. :D

it's my life story,
Yeah, some people put in the chewy cubes. I don't like the chewy cubes, that's why I didn't include the ingredients inside..

FH2O said...

I'll have a bowl please!

Warm or fridge-cold is fine with me! :)

Loc Kee said...

Chen said...

fh2o & loc kee,

Tazz said...

I like Bubur Cha Cha but have never tried cooking the dessert myself. Bubur Cha Cha with banana, I can imagine the taste, great!

carcar said...

got it! thanks for the recipe! it is much more simpler if put all the ingredients in together! haha...

Chen said...

tazz,
u should try out one of these days :)

carcar,
"someone" is experimenting, I mean cooking the dessert for the first time today..

sbanboy said...

Hmmm I wonder who is the experimenting ? Kekeke

Chen said...

sbanboy,
who is experimenting?
Our beloved "Tai Kor" loh :)

sbanboy said...

Hahaha hahaha.... I had so much fun - "Seng Kung" (success) loh .. now I think I made too much ...

Chen said...

sbanboy,
congrats on your success...
your first cooking bubur cha cha experience :)
I saw your post in your blog liao...
(just that I think u add in too much water liao.. otherwise, everything else is perfect)

Pandabonium said...

I've never had that, but by the ingredients sounds wonderful.

Chen said...

pandabonium,
I don't know how to describe the taste .. But I guess u will like it :)

Pandabonium said...

I can imagine. I've had all of those ingredients in different ways before. Perfect kind of dish for the tropics.

Chen said...

pandabonium,
might be u can try to cook it one of these days? :)
