Black Glutinous Rice Angku Kuih


These Black glutinous rice Angku Kuih was made quite some time ago but I had to put the post on hold as I was pre-occupied with the posts for  Chinese New Year Cookies.   The dough was prepared a day before and kept refrigerated till ready for use.  These angku kuih was soft and chewy and I must thank  Happy Flour  for sharing this recipe.




Recipe for Black Glutinous Rice Angku Kuih


    Ingredients  (Dough)
  • 130 gm glutinous rice flour
  • 50 gm sweet potatoes, peeled, steamed, mashed
  • 20 gm black glutinous rice flour
  • 125 ml water (to add sparingly)
  • 1/2 Tbsp oil
Filling
  • 150 gm split mung beans
  • 80 gm - 100 gm   sugar
  • 1.1/2 Tbsp oil
Method  (Filling)
  1. Soak the beans overnight, steam for 35 to 40 mins. or till soft.
  2. While hot, blend the beans with 1 cup of water.
  3. Heat up oil in a pan and fry the bean paste with sugar till it forms into a paste, leave to cool.
Method  (Dough)
  1. Mix all the ingredients together, knead to form a soft dough, adding in water sparingly.
  2. Wrap wiht clign wrap and rest in the fridge for 1 to 2 days.  (This is to allow the flour to absorb the liquid).
  3. Let dough rest in room temperature, knead before use.  (If dough is dry, add water, if dough is wet, add some glutinous rice flour).
  4. Dust the mould with some rice flour.
  5. Pinch some dough to form a ball, flatten, put in the filling, wrap up into a ball and place the ball of dough into the mould.  Press it in a  bit and knock out the kuih.   Place the kuih onto a greased banana leaf.
  6. Steam  under medium heat,  small kuih for 3 mins. while the big ones take 6 mins.
  7. Remove the kuih and immediately brush on some oil.
  8. Let cool, serve.
Note :  Small kuih - 15 gm dough/15 gm filling.  Big kuih - 50 gm dough/50 gm filling.

  1. Very nice and soft AKK. By the way I've never seen black glutinous rice flour before. Is it from the black glutinous rice that we normally cook as dessert?

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
