Suan Pan Zi( 客家算盤子)Hakka Abacus Yam Balls / Abacus Seeds / Abacus Beeds

Suan Pan Zi is like an Chinese gnocchi, made from pureed yam and some kind of flour, tossed with gravy with chopped braised shiitake mushrooms, served with chili sauce.  Since I don't know the original suan pan zi (where would I taste this?), I can only refer to the one I had in Singapore.  In Japan, it is extremely difficult to purchase yam so I had to opt with gnocchi made from simple sticky rice flour.  Consistency is okay but I should have blended with some potato puree for that distinct consistency.  Accompanied chili sauce is made from scratch using dried and fresh chili with garlic and the aromatics.
