kuih kesui

hi everyone... i'm back again.. it's a fasting month and what a great opportunity i had .. a long 2 month semester break...  another traditional recipe, my ol time favourite my mom used to make during snack and breakfast... do not worry about the ingredients, sometimes the simplicity still the best opt you had.. done with the kueh today... i made some cream puff and kesui..its 4 pm and i need to get into the kitchen to cook for some meal.. hubby asked for a steamed fish with lemongrass,lemon and pickled garlic... im more into ikan pekasam goreng..  if u like the chewiness, the palm sugar sweet and coconuty.. do try this..
                                     a low quality of pics from a traditional handset of me.Enjoy!

ingredients (1) :
1 cup dark brown sugar/palm sugar
1 cup  granulated sugar
3 cups of water
pinch of salt

* cook  this altogether until the sugar dissolve and let it cool

Ingredients (2) :
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup tapioca flour
1 tsp kapur makan + 1 tbsp water (slaked lime -do correct me if im wrong in translation)

Method :
  • Do prepare ur steamer first.. 
  • When the sugar syrup has cooled down, in a big bowl mix altogether with the flour mixture.
  • Strain the batter as u dont want any lump in the kuih later on..
  • Then pour into a baking tin and steam for 20 minutes in a
    steamer (in depends on what size ur baking tin is... the thicker the longer.. ) but steam it for about 20 - 30 mins.. 
  • When cooked, let it cool, thereafter cut it up and serve with
    the grated coconut mixed with a bit of salt.
