  3. Hi Cheah, I'm sure you love this coloured chiffon as much as I do. BTW, I always grind my own black glutinous rice flour. Mind sharing where I can get the ready ones? Also any explanation why the colour is more purple than black? TQ.

    1. I bought the glutinous rice flour, 'meal' from the baking ingredients shop i.e. Intrico Sdn. Bhd.,Ipoh Garden, Ipoh. It's not totally black, a bit of purple.

    1. It does have a slight hak lor mai taste and it's fragrant because of the coconut milk.

    1. I like the texture, soft, wasn't like sawdust. Maybe it's the black glutinous flour you used.
