This Glutinous Rice Cakes is another recipe from the Malaysian recipe book Ben gave me as a “present”. It is called Pulut Tatal in Malay. It is the photo of this recipe on the cover of the book. The picture on the recipe looked much more enticing. This one did not turn out the way I wanted it.
The Glutinous Rice Cakes is slightly chewy and its tinge of saltiness goes very well with the kaya (egg/coconut custard). You can find kaya in many Chinese groceries stores in Greater Vancouver like T&T, Smart and Save, Big Crazy, etc.
It is supposed to have a consistent light bluish patches. For this one, the blues did not dissolve the way it should be. I am a bit disappointed at how it looked.
- 500g glutinous rice
- 1 can coconut milk (398ml)
