Pulut Inti (Glutinous Rice with Coconut Topping)


Pulut inti is a Nyonya kueh. It's like Thai mango sticky rice except there's no mango. It has grated coconut instead, as a topping.

The rice layer is very pretty with a mix of blue and white. The blue bits are coloured with the juice of blue pea flowers. The coconut layer is brown because it's sweetened with palm sugar.

Orh Kueh (Steamed Yam Cake) (I)

delicious, freshly made orh kueh
Making good orh kueh starts with choosing yam that's light for its size. Lighter ones have less water, and less watery ones are nicer because they're more fluffy, powdery and fragrant.
