【奶香玉米布丁 】Kuih Kastard Jagung (Corn Custard)


This Jagung Kuih was one of the many yummy kuih (Pastry/cake) prepared for most parties and celebrations in Malaysia. It is easy to prepare and taste so yummy, was one of my favorite dessert when I was young.

There is just no way for me not to make this at home when I am out of the country!

1 杯 奶黄粉 (Custard powder)
1/2 杯 糖
1 杯 牛奶
半听 罐头玉米(cream style)
一小撮 盐
2 杯水

1 cup of Custard powder ( + 1 tbsp if you like yours a little more solid)
1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup of fresh Milk (or coconut milk)
1 cup of corn kernel (cream style)
A pinch of salt
2 cups of water

1. 一口锅里倒入两杯水煮开,一个干净容器薄薄的刷上一层油。

2. 在搅拌器里,倒入奶黄粉,糖,牛奶和一撮盐搅拌均匀,然后把搅拌好的混合料过滤加入煮开的水里,中小火继续煮。拿个勺子不断的搅拌,不要沾底。

3. 倒入半听的玉米粒,继续搅拌成半凝固状。

4. 倒入容器里,把容器拿起摇晃一下,让表面更平均一点。

5. 等糕点的温度降下来之后,放到冰箱的冷场室,完全的冷却了再切块。

1. In a cooking pot, bring 2 cups of water to rolling boil, spray or brush a thin layer of oil on a container that you will use for the custard kuih.

2. In a food processor, blend together custard powder, sugar, milk/Coconut milk and a pinch of salt. Sieve the mixture into the pot of boiling water. Continue cooking at medium low heat, keep stirring so that the custard does not stick to the bottom of the pot.

3.Pour in half can of corn kernel, and keep stirring until thicken. The whole cooking process takes about 8-10 minutes.

4.Pour the custard into the container, shake it a little to even out the surface.

5.When the mixture cold down, keep it in the fridge until it firm up, cut it into pieces and serve.
