Pumpkin Layer Kuih/ Kuih Lapis Labu

This pumpkin layer kuih is adapted from yummylicious  , which she adapted from yatie . I found it a little bit sweet hmmm.....probably I use coarse sugar , but overall it's still a yummy and delicious kuih.

There's another mistake while doing this kuih, that is, I put more than 1 cup of pumpkin puree and turn up the pumpkin layer a little bit soft, not firm enough.A lesson to learn and always remember,to follow the recipe....don't simply simply add......lols

2 cups water
11/4 caster sugar ( can reduce to 1 cup)
1/2 tsp salt
2 pieces of pandan leaves, knotted

2 cups flour
1/2 cup rice flour
1/4 cup cornflour
2 cups thick coconut milk
2 cups water

1/2 cup thick coconut milk

1 cup smashed pumpkin ( steam and smash the pumpkin)

Cook (A) until sugar dissolve, let it cool and set aside.
In another bowl, mix (B), add in the cooked syrup mixture from (A) , mix well.
Strain the mixture and divide into 2 portions.
Add in (C) to one of the mixture.Divide into 3 portions.
Add (D) into the other half. Divide into 3 portions.
Prepared 9 inch tray.I used aluminium floil to line up my tin.
Pour 1st portion of pumpkin mixture onto the prepared tray and steam for 5-7 minutes.
Pour the 1 st portion of coconut milk mixture onto the cooked 1st pumpkin layer, steam for another 5-7 minutes.
Repeat the process until finish.For the last layer, steam for 20 minutes. You'll get 3 layers of white color(coconut) and 3 layers of pumpkin kuih.
Let the steam cake/kuih completely cool, then use a plastic knife to cut out the shape. Serve.
