This recipe originally from Indonesia, in Indonesia we called it “Wedang Ronde”, warm and nourishing drink, well I can’t actually called it drink, since there are many complement in this recipe, it is almost serve as dessert, warm dessert to be exact. In most original recipe it would be consist of slice white bread (toasted white bread), tapioca pearl, roasted peanut and actually there are some more,  but the most key ingredient in this dishes is sticky rice ball/dumpling. To make the sticky rice ball, I would say that you need to invest some amount of time and patience, I love this dishes personally, so being patience is not my problem *which is usually do haha.
