When I made this, my assistant who came from Boja district at Kendal, near my house, told me that people in her region will boil cassava with grated coconut and palm sugar instead. Curios again, I asked her to make it for me. She didn't use any measurement, just put the ingredients in a pan and adjust the taste by adding this or that. Honestly, It tasted strange to me. It was good, I liked the sweet and aroma of the palm sugar but still I will vote for the savory one.
