Ingredients

A

kuih bakul
coconut (desiccated or grated)

Background

This kuih can be eaten either as steamed Kuih Bakul or as fried Kuih Bakul, whichever takes your fancy. I really cannot decide because I love both the steamed and fried versions of this amazing kuih. If you love the flavour of the desiccated or freshly grated coconut, then try this recipe. It is very simple and straight-forward as it only involves steaming and later coating the kuih bakul with desiccated coconut. Back home, we use freshly grated coconut instead, as it is readily available.

You will enjoy this steamed kuih bakul for its sticky softness. Frankly, I had foreign friends giving this kuih a thumbs up.

Steamed Glutinous Rice Cake with Coconut is also known as: Steamed Kuih Bakul年糕
