Kow Chan Kuih - 9 layer Keuh

Over the weekend I tried making 9 layer kuih/kueh. It was from a Nonya recipe book. It turned out to be more firm, than the store brought soft ones. Main ingredients were rice flour, coconut milk and sugar. I wonder if using the tapioca flour will make it softer.. will need to experiment to see next time. 
This recipe was more easier than I thought. You just need to steam each layer and it's done.
As an end result, at least each layer piled off nicely. I steam each layer for 5 mins. Next time I'll reduce it to 3min and see if it will make the layers more soft.
I put too much pink colouring, so the layers is dark pink. The top layer is a lighter pink because I combined he remaining white mix with the pink mix. Need to work on my 1-2 drops.

I don't know the difference between the spelling Kuih and Kueh... Maybe one is Malaysian and one is Singaporean? I will need to look into the difference too. 

First try with Ham & Veggie Slice

I always enjoy trying out new recipes. Afterwards with lots of trial and error, you can create your own recipe that fits your style.
This week I tried making a ham and vegetable slice. The final result was tasty but I forgot to put the cheese in. When I was putting the mix in the pan, I was wondering why it looked so thin.
My mother in law would make zucchini slice. I would put it in the freezer and heat it up when I feel hungry. I didn't realized it was such an easy recipe. Just need flour, oil and any fillings you like.

The recipe I tried was from taste.com.au, you can click on the link here.

Before ending this year, I'll upload a new cooking video. Thank you for waiting patiently. Please look forward to the video :)
