九层糕 Kueh Lapis Sagu

When it comes this layered kueh, I could never resist peeling off layer by layer to savor it.

This is my 4th attempt in making this type of kueh and by far the most satisfying version derived from this wonderful blog among the previous few I have tried. The kueh came out soft and melts in the mouth.

Directions 做法

Combine sugar, pandan leaves and 850ml of water (A) into a pot and boil till sugar dissolves. Strain away  and discard the pandan leaves. Add additional water into this syrup mixture to achieve a total of 1300ml. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, mix all flour (B) ingredients (tapioca, sago, mung bean and rice flour) together with salt until mixed. Add in coconut milk gradually and stir until smooth.

Divide the mixture into 3 equal portions. Leave the first portion in original color while the other two portions to mix with sufficient red and green food coloring respectively.

Place a non stick square baking pan into the steamer and steam for 5 mins until hot. Pour 80-85g of the original colored mixture into the pan and steam under medium high heat for 6-8 mins. Repeat another layer of original colored mixture.

Repeat the same for the subsequent 2 colored mixtures and end the last layer with red color mixture. Allow the steamed kueh to cool completely for several hours before cutting it with a well greased knife.
