This is a pudding originally from West Sumatra named Sarikayo. It was my favorite dessert back in Indonesia. Mom used to make it on Eid-ul Fitr or Eid-ul Adha, but sometimes she made it based on my request as her spoiled youngest daughter. All my brothers and sisters loved it too, because it tasted heaven :-)
I remembered once in 2005 (when I was on my summer holiday in Indonesia), our big family (my family is indeed big since I have 5 sisters and 3 brothers with lots of nephews and nieces) had lunch at the restaurant. When we read that they served this pudding as their dessert, we ordered all and made other customers had no chance to have it as their dessert :-D You know what, even for us it was not enough *lol*
The recipe that I will share here belong to my beloved mom. That's why, you do not have to hesitate to give it a try as mom's recipes are always the best.
I skipped the use of adas manis since I did not have any idea what to use to substitute adas manis. I found on the net that adas manis called fennel in English, still I was not sure. But if you have it, better to use as your pudding will taste better.
