Kuih Seri Muka (Kueh Salat)

This is a Malaysian Nonya Kueh, which contains sticky rice as bottom layer and pandan egg custard on top. I love this dessert very much. I found this recipe on Youtube and followed it:

  1. Soak 300g glutinous rice in water for 4 hrs. Drain them and place them in a plate. Add in 100ml coconut milk, 1 tsp salt and 100 ml water. and put a pandan knot over it. Steam for 25 mins.
  2. Put 5 pandan leaves (cut into small pieces) and 200 ml water into blender. Blend till very smooth. Sieve the liquid and keep the juice only.
  3. In a bowl, beat in 3 eggs. Combine with 100g sugar (original recipe requires 120g sugar, but I cut it. 100g sugar is still sweet enough for me.), 25g flour, 20g corn starch. Mix well.
  4. Add pandan juice and 150ml coconut milk into the egg mixture. Also add in 1/4 tsp salt.
  5. Put cooked sticky rice into a 20cm greased steam pan . Press them firmly.
  6. Pour egg & pandan mixture into sauce pan. turn to low heat and simmer to let it thicken. I accidentally overheated it, that’s why my kueh looks ugly. 😦
  7. Pour the egg mixture over sticky rice. Cover it with aluminium foil and steam for 30 mins.
  8. Remove the foil and steam for another 5 mins.
  9. Cool down and cut into small pieces.

It’s very sticky and hard to cut clean. My ones look ugly but taste nice.

My husband also said they taste good. πŸ™‚

Fried Creamy Custard

It’s a very popular dessert in China. I remember I had it when I was very little. Crispy outside, creamy and soft inside.


Milk 250g

Corn starch 30g

Sugar 25g

Put all these three ingredients in a sauce pan. Heat it and bring to boil. Turn to low heat. Keep stirring and it will become more and more condensed. When there is no flowing milk and bubbles start to come out, turn off the heat.

Prepare a container, line it with plastic wrap. Pour the custard inside. Flatten the surface with a spoon.

Cover the container with a lid and put into fridge.

When the custard is ready, it will be as firm as tofu. Cut it into shapes you like, cubes or long strips. Sprinkle flour over them. Make them evenly be coated with flour. Then dip in the egg and bread crumbs. Deep fry till golden brown.

Inside is soft like silky tofu. But it’s sweet, so it also tastes like ice cream.

It’s the first time for my husband to try it, he loves it very much.
