Putu Piring

It actually a Malay style of Tutu Kueh called "Putu Piring" with gula melaka (palm sugar) as filling and serves it with shredded coconut. Wasn't like the Chinese ones with brown shredded coconut and peanut fillings.

In this recipe I did not use gula lelaka (palm sugar) filling cause I don't have it at home. I use brown sugar for the filling, and that why the filling might look darker than the normal ones. And I added in some of the desiccated coconut to bring out the flavor. And here they are…

Putu Piring
Makes about 7 – 8 of 3 ¼" diameter

2 cups rice flour
¾ tsp salt
150 – 160 ml water

½ cup desiccated coconut
½ cup gula melaka, grated

Pandan leaves, cut into squares
½ cup coconut without skin, grated (optional)

1. Dry roast rice flour for 5 minute with some pandan leaves. Discard the pandan leaves and sift the flour and leave it to cool.
2. Mix the salt in hot water and sprinkle over the rice flour. Rub the water into the flour until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
3. Lightly grease a Putu Piring mould. Fill half the mould with the prepared flour and top with 1 - 2 tsp gula melaka filling and cover with more flour. Place a small piece of pandan leaf over it.
4. Steam for 10 - 20 minutes. Serve with grated coconut if desired

you should be able to buy standard measurement cups from kitchen stores or supermarket. They usually come in 1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/4cup, 1/3 cup, 1/4, cup sizes, all sold as a set. Hope you're able to find these.
