Update 26/4/13: Only until recently I knew the Malay name of this kuih, it's Pais Ubi Kayu.
The Malays have another similar kuih called Lepat Ubi, but I like this version better, which was a lot softer, due to the absense of additional tapioca starch.
If you already have the grated cassava on hand, this makes a quick tea time treat.

3. Steam on high heat for 10 minutes.
