Thai Style Steamed Tapioca Kuih

This Thai style kuih is so popular in Thailand. In the past, whoever traveled to Hatyai will always came home with a big bag of these green kuih and some deep fried chicken wings which were sold by the children along the street of Thai bus station. I haven't had them for ages. Gosh, I do missed this kuih so much. Now, this kind of kuih is also available in Malaysia but not sure where about. However, here's the quick version of it. Maybe you can give it a go too!

Ingredients :
220gm   tapioca flour
50gm    hoen kwee flour
440ml    boiling water (with pandan leaves)
200gm   sugar
100ml   thick coconut milk
1 tspn  pandan paste

Method :
(1)  dissolved sugar into boiling water (discharged leaves) and then add in coconut milk & pandan paste.
(2)  in a big bowl, combine both flour and stir in syrup mixture once it's cooled till well mixed.
(3)  now, steam mixture with a 7" square tray with oil coating.
(4)  steam the 1st three layers for 3 mins, then 4th to 6th layer for 4 mins and final layer for 5 mins.
(5)  leave to cool completely once it's done, and keep refrigerated for 30 mins before slicing.

Hubby is a super fan of this kuih. He can wallop at least a dozen of them. haha......How nice that you have no longer need to travel far to have such kuih anymore. Just make your own and enjoy it at home with your family.
I'm sending this to Suresh & Shaz @ Muhibbah Malaysian Monday.

  16. Hi there. I want to make this Thai Style Steamed Tapioca Kuih but don't know what is this ingredient Hoen Kwee flour? Is hoen hoen kwee flour same as rice flour? Please email me back. Thank you.

  17. Hi unknown,

    First of all, thanks for visiting my humble little space and glad you're interested in trying this recipe. Since you've not leave down your email address, I'll have the message written down here.
    Hoen kwee flour is the mixture of mung bean flour with a little bit of some other flour. Its not rice flour.
    All the best & have fun !
    Blessings, Kristy
