Kuih talam is a peranakan kuih dessert comprising of a green pandan and white coconut layer. An exquisite blend between sweet and savoury, the white layer packs a slightly salty and rich coconut flavour while the green pandan layer is soft, sweet and chewy. The green colour present in the kuih is formed naturally from the pandan juice extract we made from scratch, the flavour is much more intense when you make your own pandan juice. The aroma and richness of the white layer is attributed by the coconut milk blended together with the mungbean and rice flour.
This bite-sized and rich peranakan snack makes it easy to eat and the balance of flavours will be sure to make it a delightful treat for you and your guests. Serve it as a mid-day snack along with a cup of tea and treat yourself this weekend!
