I love pandan everything!

Pandan cakes, pandan kuih, pandan flavoured rice (think nasi lemak!) …  i love them all. Hahaa!

I’ve bookmarked this recipe for quite sometime already. So when i had quite a bit of white coconut left from my Ondeh Ondeh, i wasted no time to churn this kuih out.

To my surprise, it came out quite pretty! Rather easy to un-mold too! Initially, i was a little skeptical because, almost nothing works from this book! Very frustrating i tell you. This gotta be the first recipe that works OK and i’m really quite pleased.

Taste wise, it was exactly what i had expected it to be. Full pandan flavour with fragrant coconut milk. Man, if you like these 2 combo, you CANNOT not make this. Of course, the grated coconut is a must, just like Ondeh Ondeh. :)

Kuih Kosui Pandan

180g rice flour
50g tapioca flour
150g sugar
300ml thick coconut milk
450ml water + 10 pcs pandan leaves – blended, strained for pandan juice
150g (or 1/2 coconut)  grated white coconut, steamed and mixed with a pinch of salt


1. Sieve rice flour and tapioca flour into a mixing bowl, add in all the rest of the ingredients except grated coconut.
2. Mix thoroughly and stir over low heat till mixture thickens.
3. Pour into greased patty tins, steam over medium heat for 20 minutes.
4. Remove from patty tins, roll in grated coconut and serve.
