The first time I heard of this new form of boakibaa or cake was while visiting Nadhu's blog. Nadhu is a local entrepreneur, and blogger ( she is doing some video recipes on her blog this Ramadhan. ) Anyway I didn't give it much thought about this particular boakibaa.
It was until my sister in law , brought it up again saying my brother in law's wife, Shiu, makes a very delicious gerikiru boakibaa. So when I visited her place , I asked her what all the fuss was about. So she gave me her recipe.
Now the thing is I never tasted one , so even after making it I was like , is this how its supposed to look like? and taste like this? . It did taste pretty good. So to test it out I made it for a cousin of my hubby ' s , who is more familiar with this particular cake. Her verdict, it wasn't supposed to be like that. But I loved the taste and it was an easy cake to make, so I decided to post it. Besides I did follow the recipe and mine looked pretty much like Shiu's ( yes I know you are reading this ;P) , who later vibered me a photo of her version of this cake(LOL), so I know I was in the track. I have named this post Gerikiru boakibaa number 1 , as I want to work on the original recipe and post it some day soon.
