Tapioca Balls with Pork Filling (Sa-Ku Sai Muu) สาคูไส้หมู

 A long time ago, when I just started cooking, this menu was the one that I really wanted to make.


You can find it in almost every markets in Thailand, soft and juicy, and freshly made. I couldn't stop myself from buying it ^^. But most of the time, I became disappointed, as the tapioca skin was too thick and gummy, and the filling was too sweet and beyond chewy too. Well, I have so many complaint about this kind of food, because I really like it but it's hard to find good one! 
So, I better make it myself, haha. Anyway, when I first made it I started to understand that to make delicious one, you need to pay a lot attention, and time, but it's not too hard. first for the tapioca, when mixing it with hot water, just make sure that they are completely moist, AND DON'T KNEAD. If you knead it and turn some part of it into a paste, the tapioca will be easier to cover the filling but it will be gummy. Keep it moist, and when it cool, you can knead it or moisten it with a drop of cool water to make the work easier.
The filling is less troublesome, just follow the recipe and you will be fine ^^. And you can adjust the seasoning to suit your taste too, for me I don't like it to be very sweet, so I choose to use less sugar than many recipe.
I added how to make Thai fried garlic too, it's easy to make at home and you can put it over many dishes to add delicious garlic smell and taste.

 Divide into 30 pieces, and roll each piece into a ball.


 Knead tapioca for 2-3 minutes.


  Divide into 30 pieces, and roll each piece into a ball.


 Cover the filling with the tapioca* because this recipe the tapioca is thin you may think that it's hard to cover but it will be more delicious this way, plus a bit of crack is not a problem.


 Roll into a ball.
 Steam for 20 minutes.


 Cover lightly with rice bran oil.



Serve with Green Leaf, Coriander, Bird's eye chilis and fried garlic, enjoy!!!
