Kuih Belang

Umar loves this kuih. If he's in his grandfather's(atok) house, his 'atok' is sure to buy this 'kuih' every single day for him.
In Ipoh, I yet to find stalls selling this kuih ( and i am not looking hard enough :)),
so once a while, he will has this craving for kuih belang. The mummy have to make them for him.

Resepi kuih belang

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp cornflour
2 cups coconut milk
2 cups water
5 tbsp sugar (to taste)
1/2 tsp salt
red food coloring


-prepare a steamer(put in a well oiled 9" round cake tin)
-mix all ingredients together(except the food coloring)
-mix well(it's easier if you mix everything in a food processor or blender and pulse for a few seconds), then sift so there won't be any lumps
-divide into two equal portion
-color one portion red

-when the water in the steamer started to boil, pour a ladle of the white batter(I use a soup ladle) into the prepared cake tin which is inside the steamer.
-steam for about 2-3minutes,
-then pour a ladle of red batter, steam another 2-3 minutes.
repeat, until finished (end with red batter- I add a drop more food coloring to this last portion)
-steam for 15 minutes
-cool before slicing

My kids love this in green..their nenek (my MIL) call it 'gading galuh' and she's an expert. As usual, since air tangan nenek lagi best, umi depa malaslah nak belajar camne na buat! Anyway, this is useful in case hati I terbuka nak try!

hliza- pelik nama kuih tu, x penah dengar...good..tambah my knowledge...

cat cat- mesti byk lagi local kuih u missed...hehehhe..

actually the original recipe calls for 4 cups of coconut milk (thicker the better)- baru lemak, but mine i adjusted to half water, half milk- kurangkan cholestrol- healthier......
