Kuih Kosui


This Kuih Kosui is a very popular Asian snack and have been made by quite a number of bloggers recently. I also bookmarked this recipe from Alan (Travelling foodies) It is not very difficult to make this kuih, the texture is springy and soft. I love the aroma of the gula melaka (palm sugar) and pandan flavours mixed with grated white coconut.  A perfect snack for those who enjoy kuih and it's best to serve guests at home.





Kuih Kosui


    Ingredients:  makes 10-12 teacup sized individual servings   
     130g Gula Melaka    
     2 tbsp Granulated sugar
     100ml Water
     2-3 Pandan leaves, knotted
     75g Rice flour
     35g Tapioca flour
     1/2 tsp Alkaline water
     50g Grated white coconut
     3-4 Pandan leaves, a pinch of salt

     Method:
  • Add gula melaka, granulated sugar, knotted pandan leaves and 100ml water in a pot and heat until the gula melaka has melted. Turn off heat and set aside.
  • Sieve through the gula melaka syrup in a clean container and top up with more water to yield a final volume to 500ml of diluted syrup.
  • Add in rice flour, tapioca flour and alkaline water. Mix evenly and strain the mixture over a pot to remove any flour lumps.
  • Return the pot to stove and over low flame, heat the mixture until it begins to thicken slightly. Use a wooden spoon or heat resistant spatula to mix the batter at all times, especially taking care to scrape the bottom, sides and corners of the saucepan to make sure that the batter doesn't start to cook and harden there. Off fire.
  • Pour mixture over small tea cups or moulds until three quarters full. (I greased the cups with little oil before pouring in the mixture)
  • Steam for about 12 minutes under very low heat or until the batter turned a darken brown and has completely set. Remove from steamer and set aside to cool.
  • While waiting for the teacups to cool down, steam the grated coconut and pandan leaves with a pinch of salt for 8 minutes.
  • When the kuih konsui has cooled down, remove from teacup moulds by running the sides carefully with a small knife. Roll over grated coconut and served.

  21. Ai Li, I'm sure you'll love this. I think the 12 hole muffin tin is too big. I bought the plastic cups from Sunlik. Only $2 for 12. Don't be stingy lah,... hahaa

  25. Hi Ann, is alkaline water neccessary?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Karen, I think I saw some bloggers omitted the alkaline water in this recipe. You may like to try without the alkaline water and sees what the outcome as this is a very small portion recipe. Makes around 12 pieces.

  26. Good morning Ann,

    I want to double the ingredients and make it in a 7 inch square pan, can you advice me how long should I steam it?
    Thanks

    Regards

    1. Hi Lala, I'm not sure how long it takes to in square pan, proabably 30-45 mins in low fire. You can take a look at my abok abok sago, the steaming time is about 30 minutes.
