Kuih Serimuka



Glutinous Rice with Pandan Custard Layer or better known as Kuih Serimuka is one of the popular kuih or cakes in Malaysia. The bottom layer of the cake is made from glutinous rice that has been steamed with coconut milk. The top layer of the cake is a custard base, made from eggs, coconut milk, flours, and most importantly the fresh Pandan juice. The cakes are delicious and have just the right sweetness level.

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.
