Lompat Tikam


  1. This reminds me of a pandan panna cotta with palm sugar syrup made by Willin Low (Wild Rocket). It was so silky-smooth - like eating a pandan-flavored tau foo faa. How is the texture of the lompat tikam?

    Would it work without the air kapur, y'think?

  2. Nice Lompat Tikam dessert.

    Reminds me of the old days of playing 'tikam tikam'...

  3. what is kapur water? where can we get it from?

  4. GFAD, the texture is not like tau foo faa but more kuih like

    Thanks Pete for visiting

  5. Hi Mistygal, that's a very good question... air kapur is lime water and it's sold at most Indian stalls that sells betelnut. Perhaps a post on air kapur would be great help for those who are residing overseas, will write up next week ok

  6. Huh, I never heard about this before >.<
