I like to make this easy kuih if I happen to crave for some Malaysian kuih-muih (Asian steamed/baked cake). You can either use a rice cooker or a steamer to make the bottom part of this kuih which is the glutinous rice. For this recipe, I will use a rice cooker to cook the rice since its more widely available in people house. Serve this as a dessert, snack or breakfast. This kuih should be finished in 3 days without refrigeration. The glutinous rice will harden when place in the refrigerator but you can always microwave it before consuming.
2 cups of glutinous rice, washed
Thick coconut milk/
1/4 tsp. sea salt
2 cups sweeten shredded coconut flakes
Gula Melaka or Dark brown sugar, to taste
1. In your rice cooker, add in the washed glutinous rice and pour in the coconut milk until it reaches 2.5 on the indicator line. Add the sea salt and give it a stir. Let the rice cooked.
2. When the rice is cooked, give it a stir and then place it in a square pan. Press and compact the rice. Let it cool.
3. At the meantime, prepare the top. In a saucepan, add in some water and gula Melaka/dark brown sugar, let the sugar melt. Then, add in the coconut flakes, stir to mix well, When it dried up, that's mean it's done. Pour this coconut mixture on top of the compacted rice. Spread evenly. Let it cool.
4. Then, slice into pieces and serve on a plate! Enjoy!
