Kueh Tutu

1 hour


12 pieces

Kueh tutu is a small steamed cake made of finely pounded rice flour and filled with either ground peanuts or grated coconut cooked in gula melaka.
It is made by steaming rice flour in a special mould. The step of dry frying the rice flour, sieving it after adding water to it and letting it rest 30 minutes before steaming will ensure the unmolding process goes smoothly without cracks.
For those who prefer your kueh light and airy, don’t compress the rice flour when molding.
Give it a try, with family members or friends. Create the perfect bonding moment and enjoy piping hot kueh tutus in the comfort of your homes!
