Kuih Koci

Daddy bought some kuih-muih (Malay for cakes, kuih is singular whilst kuih-muih is plural) recently from a particular stall Mei Kee or something which I can't recall in Bandar Sri Damansara. Managed to capture some of it with digicam. Will showcase them here.

I usually don't fancy kuih-muih. I've no idea why is it so when they're rather delicious in nature. Weird huh?? Anyway, if you happen to see cone shaped banana leaves package, they're usually known as kuih koci. This is the modern version...

As far as my memory serves me, kuih koci's skin (made from glutinous rice flour) is white in colour, steeped in fragrant santan (Malay for coconut milk) - both smell and taste. Bound inside the skin will be grated coconut cooked in gula melaka (a type of palm sugar).

Errr the modern version's skin is green in colour which usually indicates pandan leaves extract is added in. However, many people scrimp on that as it entails a lot more work, hence they used green food colouring instead, duh!

Now, here is how it looked with the grated coconut fillings.

I find that this stall's kuih koci is not bad... santan fragrance was heavenly coupled with plump and juicy grated coconut fillings... it's really nice. The skin is not too thick (hates them thick) and the size of this kuih is kinda slightly larger too.

For those who wanna attempt in making them recipes can be found here.
