Kuih Kasturi 【绿豆炸糕】& 【绿豆卷】



The canteen in my high school sells only Halal/Malay foods as it is a Malay school, I loved some of the Kuih (pastry/snack) they sell in the canteen. This Kuih kasturi is one of them.

I have made this kuih a couple of times in the past few years, but didn't have a chance to photograph them. Since my work is a little relax this week, I made a batch of this kuih to enjoy and take a few snaps...

1. 先把绿豆洗净后泡水两个小时,加大约4杯水煮滚转中小火焖烂。

5. 加入1大勺酥油/黄油,2 大勺的蛋黄粉,2大勺的面粉一起搅拌成顺滑的面糊,面糊应该的浓稠度大概是一般挂糊那样的稠度, 加一点姜黄粉或一滴色素调颜色。如果太稠的话可以加点水调一调。

1. Clean and soak the mung beans for 2 hours, drained and place it in a pot with 4 cups of water, bring to boil and turn to medium to cooked until the beans are all soft.

2. Continue cooking until all the water is gone and the mung bean turned into a thick paste, remember to stir in between so that the beans doesn't stick to the bottom.

3. Add the all purpose flour, sugar, salt and grated coconut into the mung bean paste. Let cooled and rubbed a little oil over palm, take about 2 tablespoons of the paste and make a round cutlet.
