Kueh Salat – 沙拉糕

A traditional nonya kueh favourite, Kueh Salat is also known as Kuih Seri Muka and is very popular in Asia.

We used pandan juice and pandan paste amongst other ingredients amongst other things to create the kaya mixture/layer. We used rinse-free Kinmemai Better White Rice, which has more fibre, vitamins and better immune system boosting nutrients compared to conventional white rice.

We used dried blue pea flowers to create the blue coloring to drizzle over parts of the rice, and then poured the kaya mixture to complete the dish.
