Pandan Cold Kueh


I have posted this kueh before long time ago, back in 2010 here and also had made this several times. I'm here doing it again to join in for this month's Little Thumbs Up event with the  theme, Pandan. The texture of this kueh is something between a kueh and agar agar and most of the time, i chill it in the fridge after the kueh has cooled down from cooking although you can still have the option not to put it in the fridge but if you are not able to finish it, you still got to put it in the fridge due to the contents of coconut milk. There is always a little fun marbling them, if we pour in the green layer first you will get something like this..

contrary if we pour in the coconut mixture first, it will look something like this..

cook the green layer till it becomes this..


before steaming..



Recipe ( from the book Nyonya Kuih Passions )
Syrup
150gm sugar
150ml water
1 pandan leaf, knotted

Cook sugar and water with pandan leaf until sugar dissolved. Remove the pandan leaf and divide the syrup into 2 portions, 175ml and 75ml for ingredient A and ingredient B

Ingredient A
43 gm green pea flour
300ml pandan juice
1/8tsp alkaline water
175ml syrup

Take half of the pandan juice ( 150ml ) to mix with green pea flour. Add the alkaline water to the balance of the pandan juice ( 150ml ). Mix both mixture together and strain. Add syrup and cook over low heat till it boils and slightly thicken,  keep stirring all the time. Remove and leave aside.

Ingredients B
25gm green pea flour
110ml water
85ml coconut milk
1/8tsp salt
75ml syrup

Mix all of ingredients B and strain. Cook on low heat till hot and just boiling. Pour this into a prepared tin. Pour in ingredients A and stir to form marble pattern. Steam for 40mins. Remove and let cool before chill in fridge or you can eat after it has cooled down for several hours.

    1. hi louise, alkaline water is also known as lye water, usually used in very little amount to make kuihs like these to thicken the solution and for a springy texture kind like. Will b chking your post soon :)

  6. Hi Lena
    The marbled or swirl makes this kuih looks special, isnt it? There is the difference effect on which layer you pour in first. Any layer fisrt, it taste absolutely yummy. I have this cookbook too but yet to make any recipe from it....

  7. Hi Lena, I like this marbled kuih. So lovely combination and I'm so tempted to try it soon. Is this kuih called 'Hoon Kwe' in Hokkien? My late papa's favourite if it is.

  18. Hi Lena,

    Both kuehs made from the same recipe can look so different depending which mixture you pour first... I like this one (with the coconut mixture first) more than the one you made in 2010.
