Kuih Ee

This is one of the Chinese traditional desset. I love it during childhood and now my girls turn to love it too! Let me show you how to make it, tips learn from my dear mom.


• 250g glutinous rice flour

• 230ml water

• Pink and red colouring


• sugar to taste

• 1,200ml water

• some pandan leaves, knotted

• few thin slices of old ginger


Put glutinous rice flour in a basin. Add water gradually and mix until a soft dough is formed. Divide dough into 3 equal portions. 1 portion uncoloured, add pink colouring to another, and red to the other. Roll each portion out into a long strip, then pinch off small, equal portions; roll each small portion between the palms of both hands to form round balls.Bring the water to a boil and add the balls. When the kuih ee is cooked, they will float to the surface.Leave to cool, then drain.

Pretty simple, right? Try it!
