|Here's the close-up ...
see the bananas ... yummy
As a kid, all I knew was to eat and to enjoy whatever desserts or kuehs she'd made ... but these are the few names I could remember : Kuih Seri Muka, Kueh Jagung, Pisang Hoon Kueh, Tapioca Kueh, Kuih Dadar, Sweet Potato Ondeh Ondeh, Goreng Pisang, Kuih Lapis etc.
Savoury types : Steamed yam cake, traditional dumplings etc.
As these traditional kuehs are easily available, I hardly make them. But recently I've made a few ... to reminisce about my late mom's cooking and some fond childhood memories :
Kuih Seri Muka
Steamed Tapioca Kueh
A variation using the recipe of Kueh Jagung ... So here's some Pisang Hoon Kueh for the family.
Banana Hoon Kueh (Pisang Hoon Kueh)
2 medium-sized ripe bananas, thinly sliced
50g Hoon Kueh Powder
100ml coconut milk
35g or 3 tablespoons white sugar (adjust the sweetness to your preference)
Pinch of salt
2 pieces of pandan leaves (about 6 inch length)
1. In a pot, mix the Hoon Kueh powder, sugar, coconut milk, water and stir or whisk it lightly till dissolved and smooth.
2. Cook with low flame, add in the salt and pandan leaves and stir the mixture continuously till it is slightly thickened (about 3 minutes). Bring to a boil and add in the sliced bananas, off the flame. Give a few more stirring. The mixture should be thick, but still quite smooth and runny. Discard the pandan leaves.
3. Pour the mixture into a container and spread evenly with the back of a spoon.
*you could also wrap it with banana leaves.
4. Leave it to cool then chill in the fridge for a few hours. Served cold.

a cup of freshly brew tea latte!
Boy : Taste very nice. Like the Kuih Jagung you made. Like the texture. .. just right ... not too hard or soft, nice with bananas.
Mom : Yes, I reduced slightly on the Hoon Kueh powder and sugar.
Well, enjoying our weekend afternoon snack ^-^!
