香兰糯米糕 Kuih Seri Muka

My second attempt at making this kuih and found it equally good as compared to my first version two years ago.

I copied down this recipe in my scrapbook somewhere but couldn't quite remember where I go it from. Anyway, both recipes are almost similar and whichever method you apply I am sure you will get equally happy results.

Kuih Seri Muka

Ingredients 材料

Base Layer 糯米底层 (A)
360g Glutinous Rice 糯米 (soaked overnight 泡浸隔夜)
360ml Thick Coconut Milk 浓椰浆
1 Tsp Salt 盐
4 Pandan Leaves 班兰叶

Custard Layer 上层 (B)
150g Sugar 砂糖
100ml Water 清水

12 Pandan Leaves 班兰叶
100ml Water 清水

36g Custard Powder 奶油粉
1-1/4 Tsp Plain Flour 中筋
1-1/4 Tsp Tapioca Flour 木薯粉
7 Medium Eggs 鸡蛋
400ml Thick Coconut Milk 浓椰浆

Directions 做法

Drain away the water from glutinous rice (A).  Add salt and coconut milk (A) into the glutinous rice to combine. Set aside.

Combine sugar and 100ml water (B) into a saucepan and boil until the sugar dissolved. Set aside to cool.

Cut pandan leaves (A) into 3-4 inch lengths. Arrange some into a 9.5 inch steaming tray. Pour glutinous rice over the pandan leaves and place the remaining pandan leaves over the rice. Steam the rice over high heat for 25 mins until slightly cooked.

Fluff up the rice and remove all pandan leaves from the steaming tray. Use the back of a rubber spatula or spoon to tightly compact the rice back into the steaming tray.

Transfer the steaming tray back into the steamer and steam for a further 10 mins. Remove and set aside.

Cut pandan leaves (B) into 1-2cm lengths. Then combine with 100ml water (B) into a blender to extract pandan juice. Strain and set aside.
将材料B的班兰叶剪成1至2cm段,配上100ml 清水B用食物加工器搅碎得取班兰汁,过沥搁置。

In a mixing bowl, combine (B) coconut milk, pandan juice, custard powder, tapioca flour and plain flour until incorporated. Whisk in beaten eggs and sugar syrup to combine. Strain.

Cook the custard mixture over very low heat until slightly thickened. Pour over the cooked glutinous rice layer.

Steam over medium heat for 20-25 mins until set.

Allow 2 hours of cooling time before serving.

Note :

I opted for fresh coconut milk in this recipe. For this recipe, I mix 900ml of water with 1 fresh grated coconut to strain out the required milk. For convenience, you may also use store bought coconut cream and mix with equal ratio of water to get the coconut milk.
