Rose Biscuits


This is the first time I make Rose Biscuits. I'm using the Scandinavian Rosette mold instead of the regular Rose biscuit mold. I guess they all work the same way but with different recipes. This biscuit are popular during the Chinese New Year in Malaysia and Singapore.

Rose Biscuits

Ingredients

400 ml tin Coconut Milk
150 g All Purpose Flour
100 g Rice Flour
2 Eggs
100 g Sugar
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
Oil for deep-frying

Method

Combine the eggs and sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolves. Then add in the coconut milk, all purpose flour, rice flour and salt.

Mix the batter until they are smooth. Set aside for 1/2 an hour.

Heat the oil in moderate heat. Dip the mold in the oil and remove excess oil. Then dip the mold into the batter and into the oil. Move the mold about until the biscuit separated from the mold. Fry the biscuit until golden brown and drain on paper towel.

When the biscuits are cool, store them in airtight cookie jar.

  1. I love that you show the tool used for this! An uncle of my family gives these to us these past few years; I love the image of him patiently dropping each rose into the fryer. But I've never watched it so I've been dumbfounded at how it's made. When did you get your rose tool? (The closest shape I could find was the handle on the outdoor water spigot!)

  3. Wow, these take me back. My great grandmother used to make these in her kitchen, back when I was but a wee lad. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Wish I had a mold to try it with.

  4. Oh, they look good but they're supposed to be rolled in sugar when they come out of the the oil!

  6. Wow! I live in India and we have Indian friends who've made this traditionally at Christmas. Any idea what the history of Rose Biscuits are? Are they called by any other name?

  7. I make Rosettes all the time which are quite similar.The batter is different but they are quite delicious. I use the same rose frying iron. This is the recipe for the batter I use: 2 eggs 1 tablespoon white sugar 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour 1 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt vegetable oil for frying sifted confectioners' sugar. Delicious & simple!

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
