Kuih Seri Muka

Very happy with the 'performance' of my electric steamer, I made this steamed Nyonya kuih as I have the pandan juice and blue pea flower [bunga telang] water  left over from making of the snowskin mooncakes.  If you don't have the indigo colour, it is alright to make it plain.  In fact, I shouldn't have mix the blue and plain colour rice together, then I would have a more distinct tri-colour kuih [white, blue and green].

Not too difficult to prepare yet the kuih is good and definitely worth the to make for the family and friends.   My friends told me this kuih is good.

Ingredients - original recipe from Home Cooking Magazine with slight modifications
[I used 15x23 cm oval shape steaming tray of my electric steamer]
Rice Layer
100 gm glutinous rice - washed and soaked for 4 hours
100 gm glutinous rice - washed and soaked with blue pea water [please refer here for preparation]
150 ml thin coconut milk
2-3 pandan leaves
1/2 tsp salt [use 1/4 tsp for each portion]
Top Pandan Layer
125 ml thick coconut milk
110 gm sugar
1.5 tbsp cornflour
50 ml pandan juice [blend 5 blades of pandan leaves with 50 ml water, strain to obtain the juice]
3 eggs
a drop of green colouring [optional]

  1. Drain rice and combine the rest of ingredients.  Place in a steaming tray and steam for 40 minutes until rice is cooked.   Cool for a while and discard the pandan leaves.
  2. Transfer rice to a lightly greased steaming tray.  Press rice gently to level out.  Steam for 10 minutes over high heat.
  3. Mix all the topping ingredients well.  Strain into a double boiler with boiling water.  Stir mixture until it thickens.
  4. Pour mixture over the steamed rice and continue to steam for another 25 minutes over low heat.
  5. Cool thoroughly [several hours] before slicing.

Hi Kimmy,

I have bought an electric steamer for myself too. I didn't have a large work and limited space to steam large items and so electric steamer is good!

Yummy kuih seri muka!


Kimmy said...

Hi Zoe, me too. I glad that I have this steamer. This quantity is enough for my family of 3 and neighbours.

Wow, I like that kuih. It's one of my favourite.

Hi Joyce, yes they are good for snacking. Quite expensive now to buy from the Nyonya Kuih seller.

Kimmy said...

Hi Mich, these are all natural colourings.

Kimmy said...

Hi Veronica, yes, I used fresh flowers [easily available at the fencing of my place]. Will watch out for yours.

Hi Cheah, now I know one of your 'likes'.

Phong Hong said...

Kimmy, I love this kueh especially the topping part!

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, the topping tasted very much like pandan kaya but not too sweet.

HK Choo said...

Nothing beats home-made from scratch and just look at the striking natural colors. I am tempted to try, hahha...
By the way, Kimmy, the link on "method for making blue pea water" is not working, just to let you know :)

Kimmy said...

Thanks KH Choo for the highlight, forgotten to link. Link done.
