Pulung-pulung sela or cassava ball is a traditional cake having been quite familiar among Balinese people. Around the 1980s, this cake became a favorite for the old, young people as well as children.

Currently children no longer know this cake, denoting a heritage of their ancestors. They just enjoy the instant and relatively modern cookies.

Lately, this kind of cake begins to reappear. Traditional stalls in urban areas have sold it again. Its ingredient and shape may be the same, but the price is even more expensive. In the past, people could by it at IDR 5 per piece or even two pieces, but now it is sold for IDR 1,000 or IDR 2,000 per piece. Nevertheless, old people who are missing this traditional cake will definitely buy it.

It is primarily made from cassava. The ingredient is very versatile and can be made into a variety of foods. Aside from cassava, the other ingredients are young coconut, brown sugar, salt and cooking oil. At first, grate the entire coconut and cassava ingredient. Mix well the grated cassava, coconut and salt together. Slice thinly the brown sugar. Having finely and evenly prepared the batter, it is then shaped into a ping pong ball and filled in with brown sugar inside the ball. Fry until looking golden and brown. Finally, it can be served in warm condition. (BTN/015)
