Kuih Talam




This recipe is from Agnes Chang's cookbook, and I make a slightly changed in the recipe.Her recipe used 22 cm(8inch plus) steaming tray, but I used 7 inch steaming tray, so my kuih is a little bit high.
When cook the bottom layer,  use LOW fire, and keep stirring, until slightly thick.
I used pandan juice which I made earlier from here.

Ingredients:

Bottom Layer:
(A)
180 gm rice flour
30 gm green peas flour
780 ml water
40 ml pandan juice

(B)
1 tsp alkaline water
250 gm sugar

Top Layer:
1 grated coconut squeezed out 300 ml coconut milk
40 gm rice flour
20 gm corn flour
150 ml water
1 tsp salt

Method:
Mix all the bottom layer ingredients (A) and strain into a pot.
Add ingredient (B) and cook with LOW fire until thick.
Pour into 22 cm steaming tray.
Steam with high heat for 30 minutes until cooked.
Mix ingredients for top layer and strain into a small pot.
Cook until thick.
When the bottom layer is cooked, slowly pour in the top layer and steam for 15 -20 minutes, until cooked.
Remove, cool before cutting.

I can imagine that your kitchen must have been filled with this lovely fragrance of pandan when steaming this kueh.

Jeannie said...

I agreed with Zoe, the smell from your kitchen would be so fragrant! I have not tried making this kueh before, too much to finish on my own as the boys don't like this kuih:(

I didn't know green peas flour is used for the bottom layer, learned something new from your recipe.

This kuih is such a fav among Malaysians though I have not made it before, just buy some from the market at times.

best of luck in submitting your recipe and how you make it.

I love kueh talam. My brother's friend from Ipoh makes the best kueh talam, one that you will dream about it now and then. Yours looks good too. Good job.

Looks really good. Why do you separate the ingredients for the Bottom Layer into 2 parts: A and B ?
