Just wanted to share with you this recipe that I tried yesterday.
It's an easy recipe for kuih cara manis.
The recipe instructed to 'blend' the batter but I simply whisked it manually till my arm (nearly) came off. After all, orang dulu-dulu didn't need no blender, ye tak?
The kuih turned out really nice, if I may say so myself. Saying that, Big H didn't like it much, although Little H kept returning back to the kitchen for more and more.. :)
You need to get the moulds to make this one, of course. I think you can get these moulds easily back in Malaysia if you look for them. You can also, of course, use the mould to make bahulu or kuih cara berlauk as well so rest assured your investment in such a mould would be worthwhile...he he he..
They're cheap anyway.
Righty-ho..let's get down to the recipe!
2 cups flour
3.5 cups santan (coconut milk)
Some pandan juice..or just the paste - you can easily get this anywhere.
Blend the top 5 ingredients all together. Mixture will be thick-ish. Sieve into another bowl or a measuring cup (easier to pour later). Oil the mould and heat it up - once hot, make sure to turn the fire down and keep it low. Pour batter into each mould and then sprinkle or spoon some sugar onto each one. Cover. It will be ready in a few minutes, when the middle is fairly dry and you can see that the sides have browned a bit. Use a spoon to scoop it out gently. Stick two together to make green eggs...or so my son called them..
Told you it's easy!
Try it! InshaAllah you wont regret it.
