80gm rice flour
40gm tapioca flour
40gm green bean flour
200gm sugar
500ml water
1/2 tspn lye water/alkaline water
2 tspn pandan paste
*
- mix in all ingredients and cook over low heat.
- keep stirring constantly untill mixture became thicken.
- pour batter to a 7" oil coated tray and steam for 20 mins.



Ingredients for Coconut Layer :
60gm rice flour
40gm green bean flour
2 tbsp tapioca flour
500ml coconut milk
1 tspn salt
*
- combine all ingredients and cook over low heat.

- pour coconut batter to the base layer and steam for another 20 mins.
- then leave completely cool (about 3 hours) before slicing.

  1. These kuih slices look so Q (elastic) and good. Sure many things could be easily bought from any of many stores, but to make them at home definitely adds fun and joy in the food.

  2. yum yum...i like this kuih but i cant eat much. Another type that i like is the one with a layer of pulut.

    can be found anywhere but good ones are very hard to find.

    Sometimes a tiny piece selling for 60-80sen and doesnt taste good also

    what is "lye water"? Is it "air abu"?

  3. It looks good! I've never had it before! I think it's wonderful that you try to make things at home. It's also nice to know exactly what goes into it. Does it taste better from home?

  12. Angie : Yes, it is quite Q and I like it this way!

    Smallkucing : I have to agree with you. I don't like the soft one. I still remember they were selling this for only 20 cents a slice 20 years back! Yes, lye water is 'air abu' or alkaline water. Oh right, I'm about to make kuih seri muka! So, see you then!

    Lyndz : Frankly, I'm a bit lazy to make this kind of kuih at home but couldn't find the exact one I like out there. What a fussy eater, right! hehe... So, it's better to make at home!

    Alison : Thank you very muhc!

    Betty : Hi there, welcome to my humble little space & nice to meet you. Hope to hear from you more often.

    Belinda : It tastes much to the coconut flavour and a bit chewy.

    Drick : Hope you can try this out one day!

    Divya : Thank you very much and glad you like it too!

    Rebecca : I'm having fun!

    Penny : It is quite easy to make! Hope you will try it out one day!

    Spoon : Thank you and glad you like it too!

    Thanks everyone for visiting and spending your weekend with me. Hope you will like the recipe too! Have a wonderful weekend.

    Cheers, kristy

  15. Terima kasih Adik Kristy? I am going to make it asap. But, I don't think I can find lye water here, and I am not sure what green bean flour is. I'll look at the Asian market, I might have to find the substitute for both.

    It looks so delicious. I am drooling!

  16. What a beautiful treat. While this may be an every day type food where you live, to me it is very exotic.
    I totally agree about how cool it is to try to recreate your favourite treats at home--even if they are a lot easier to buy.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  19. Looks so springy! My mom used to make these when we were young. I made kuih this weekend too coincidentally:D Same colour too lol!

  20. to be honest, I've never really enjoyed kuih.. I feel that it's either too dry or too dense. Perhaps, i've just never had a good one.

  21. My MIL loves these......Still remember that the pasar malam trader used to give free sample when they first intro this.
