And now I have to quickly ask my sister for help. But she couldn't remember the exact recipe that our late mom used but she has a recipe that she learned in the cooking class in community center. The recipe could be modified slightly and used for the Corn Kueh or Kueh Jagung that I wanted to make.
When she sent me the recipe via Watsapp ... I burst into laughter and we really had some hilarious exchanges :
Me :Gosh ! ... typewriter age ? ... ha haa!
Sis : Ya this recipe very long ago ... since 1999, I learnt from community center cooking class ... ha ha ! OK, not bad, nice !
Me : Yea I can see that ... "wah biah" gosh ! Space 1999 (our childhood TV series) ... wah haa ha!
About 40g of sweet corn
80g Hoon Kueh Powder (Some packaging may label it as Green Bean Flour)
100ml coconut milk
50g white sugar (add more if you preferred sweeter)
Pinch of salt
Some pandan leaves
Cut some banana leaves for wrapping. Again ... I 'anyhow' cut the leaves in rectangular sizes. Soaked the banana leaves in warm water for about 15 minutes. Drain and wipe the leaves dry.
1. In a pot, mix the Hoon Kueh powder, sugar, coconut milk, water and stir or whisk it lightly till dissolved and smooth.
(When I poured the Hoon Kueh powder ... Oh no ! Green Hornet ... Incredible Hulk ! why green colour ?! It didn't indicate green colour on packaging. Later I realised that the wordings in green meant as green colour Hoon Kueh powder)
2. Cook with low flame, add sweet corn, salt and pandan leaves and stir continuously till it slightly thickened. Off the the flame.
3. Place about 3 tablespoons of the slightly thickened mixture on the banana leaf and wrap it.
(Hee hee ... perhaps I didn't soak the banana leaves long enough ... it cracked when folded ... fret not ... here comes the rubber band to the rescue !)
4. Chill in the fridge for an hour or more. Served cold.
Girl : nice ! but why these kuehs not in white colour that we used to buy ?
Mom: hmm ... I like to be creative to have some nice green colour, can? LOL >~<
We enjoyed these chilled nice pandan and coconut fragrance sweet dessert.
Will try the banana kueh ... must make sure to get the right colour (white) Hoon Kueh powder!
Have a nice weekend ^-^!
