5 Eggs (beaten)
1 tsp. Vanilla
3-4 C. Cooked & Grated Taro
1/2 C. Butter or Margarine (optional)

Number Of Servings:
approx. 24 pieces
Preparation Time:
45 min.
Personal Notes:
I don't use butter in the recipe, but i've found that if your going to eat them right away (within a couple of days) you don't need it. If your making them in advance for some occasion, you might want to add the butter so the taro doesn't dry out. Cool your taro after cooking and it will be much easier to grate. Grating takes awhile so do it before you start mixing your ingredients. You also might want to dust your pieces with whatever you you call that stuff you use for mochi since the edges are sticky.
