Ang Ku Kueh红龟果
600g glutinuous rice flour
14 tbsp cooking oil
4 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp red colouring
400ml coconut milk
a pinch of salt
1. Remove 100g of glutinous rice flour and boil with 100ml water till of a thick paste.
2. Boil coconut milk with a pinch of salt and pandan leaves and set aside to cool.
3. Sift the remaining 500g glutinous rice flour onto table. Add the sugar and red colouring, mix well and add the coconut milk gradually. Mix well and knead for a while, then add in the cooked dough. Knead again adding the oil gradually and knead until dough is pliable and smooth. Rest dough for 30 minutes.
4. Divide dough into even portions depending on the mould you are using. For each kueh ku, the quantity of the dough and the filling should be the same.
5. Clean banana leaves and cut into pieces slightly bigger than the mould because the leaves will shrink when steamed.
6. Flatten each piece of dough to form a thin skin and wrap with a ball of tau sah. Press the dough ball into the mould, knock the mould gently to dislodge the kueh ku and place it on a piece of banana leaf.
7. Steam kueh koo over medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Remove the steamer lid to let out excess steam in between steaming time so that you will have a nicely shaped kueh ku. When cooked, remove and brush with a little oil to prevent sticking.
