Happy Halloween to all my readers. Gosh, its November already !!! Soon Christmas will be arriving and the white chilling snow will take over the land of green. Can you imagine how time flies ? And pumpkin should be the one on season right now, I noticed everyone is busy preparing the pumpkin menu. >o< However, its the monsoon season over in Asia by this time of the year. Rainy days ! My family would love something warm to fill up their stomach. I thought maybe these sweet delicious Oh Ku dumpling will treat them well. This Oh Ku dumpling as well translated as 'Oh' meaning black in Hokkien dialect & 'Ku' meaning tortoise because the shape of the dumpling. The whole thing also brings the meaning of dark tortoise kuih or dumpling. Though mine isn't dark enough ! >o< And the one called 'Ang Ku Kuih' where 'Ang' meaning red in colour and the rest will be the same. So, lets come & join me in the kitchen.
350gm glutinous rice flour
50gm tapioca flour
2 TB sugar
2 TB cooking oil
300ml pandanus juice, hot
(from 15 pcs pandanus leaves blend with water)
Fillings : 600gm red bean paste or homemade paste
(divide into 40gm each)
(1) combine glutinous rice flour, tapioca flour & sugar into a big mixing bowl.
(2) now, stir hot pandanus juice into flour mixture to form a soft dough then add in oil and knead to combine & smooth. Then divide into 50gm each.
(3) next, coat both hands with cooking oil then press dough to flatten. Place in fillings and nicely sealed then the dumplings.
(5) once its done, cooled for 5 minutes before serving. You may trim off the leaves after steamed.
