Kuih Seri Muka

Kuih is a snack or dessert type of food found in many shapes, colours and textures. Seri muka is one of my favourite kuihs and I decided to try it at home. (Honestly, it's better to get them from the stalls as you will probably eat one or two pieces only. ) Anyways, it turned out well but we couldn't finish the whole tray at home. We gave some to our neighbours and.... they loved it! 

Bottom layer
Glutinous Rice - 250g (aoaked for 4 hours, and drained) 
Bottom Layer
Thin coconut milk - 150 ml
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Top Layer
Eggs - 2
Castor sugar - 150g
Pandan Juice (Blend approx 10 pandan leaves with 120ml water)
Coconut milk - 350ml
All-purpose flour - 120g
Corn flour - 3 tbsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
*Green colouring (optional)

Steam glutinous rice with coconut milk and salt for 30 minutes. Let it rest for about 5-10 minutes and transfer to a square pan. Press it with the back of a wet spoon till firm and let it cool.
To prepare the top layer, beat eggs and sugar till sugar is dissolved. Add pandan juice, coconut milk and salt. Stir well. You may also add in some additional green colouring if required.
Sift in flour and whisk until everything is well mixed. Strain the mixture and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Pour the mixture on top of the pressed glutinous rice and steam over medium heat for about 30 minutes.
Cool completely before slicing.

* Steam over medium heat to get a smooth surface.
