Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 cans coconut milk (800mL)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 2 cups tapioca starch
  • 1/2 tsp jasmine extract
  • 1/2 tsp pandan extract

Method:

  1. Place sugar, coconut milk and water into a saucepan. Stir on medium heat until the sugar completely dissolves. Set aside to cool.
  2. Prepare your steamer. Place an oiled tray into your steamer so that the tray heats up.
  3. Combine rice flour and tapioca starch in a bowl.
  4. Gradually add in the cooled coconut milk mixture (approximately half a cup at a time) and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon or by hand (I prefer using my hand as I am able to feel for lumps a lot better).
  5. Once the mixture is smooth, pour the mixture through a strainer.
  6. Stir the mixture and divide into two portions. Place jasmine extract into one portion and pandan extract into the other portion. Mix each portion well.
  7. Place a layer of jasmine mixture onto the tray in the steamer (The amount you place onto the tray will depend on your tray size, but you are aiming for a thickness of 2-3mm). Steam for 5 minutes.
  8. Place a layer of pandan mixture onto tray. Steam for 5 minutes. Repeat this process using alternating mixtures until there is no mixture left. (Remember to give each mixture a good stir before pouring it onto the tray). Steam the final top layer for 8 minutes.
  9. Allow the contents of the tray to cool.
  10. Remove from tray and cut into small portions.

Overall:

This sweet, sticky, chewy dessert is one of my all time favourites and I am thrilled to have a perfect recipe for it.

Thoughts:

Rendang Daging – steak pieces cooked in spices and desiccated coconut = Not bad

Curry Laksa – a bland mix of noodles, fish cake, chicken, roast pork and fried bean curd in a coconut milk curry soup = Not bad

Salt and Pepper Squid – well seasoned pieces of delightfully crispy squid = Not bad

Stir fried Chinese water spinach – simple and not overly oily = Not bad

Eggplant with Bean sauce – the eggplant skin was a bit too chewy, but apart from that it was quite a tasty dish = Not bad

Char Hor Fun – stir fried rice noodles with pork, chicken, squid, prawns and vegetables, topped with egg gravy = Not bad

Cha Kueh Teow – stir fried rice noodles with shrimp, roast pork, egg, bean shoots and chilli = Not bad

 

Overall:

The food here is typical of a Chinese-Malaysian restaurant with no particular dishes standing out.  The staff are friendly and the service is quick. Note that they are closed on Tuesdays.
