3K Steamed bun ( Ki Ka Ku) _with recipe

I'm so happy to see the result of my 1st attempted (again 1st time !!!) of making steamed bun, I just learnt this recipe over the tele-conversation with my mum yesterday. Today I immediately give it a try. I don't know the exact name in English, so I just give a name as 3K bun, because in Hokkian name as " Ki Ka Ku" . This is 100% pure pandan flavour, no added any artificial colouring..another healthy bun..





-Before steam, bun with filling, black sesame (one red dot) and lotus paste (3 red dots)

-Before steam, plain one, just add pandan juice, very nice pure green colour. My kids love this plain type very much.

- After steamed


- Do you want to have a bite? The texture is soft and QQ..


3K steamed bun (Ki Ka Ku)- Plain type

** can make about 30pcs

Glutinous rice flour 250g
All purpose flour 300g
Caster sugar 150g (you may increase, if you want sweeter)
Cooking oil 100g
Yeast 1 ½ tsp
Pandan water (screwpine leaf) 120g – (Blend 15pcs of pandan leaves + 7-8tbsp of water)
Water 120g (adjust if necessary)

Banana leaves (cut into equal square shapes)

Steps:-
Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl, knead until smooth (something like pao dough, softer than pao dough)

Divide dough to equal portion (about 40g), shape into small round ball. Grease your hand with some cooking oil, place small round ball on the banana leaf, and flatten the dough by pressing your palm on the round ball.

Keep aside and rest for 1hour.

Steam on hot water for 15mins or until cooked.

Do enjoy making kuih-muih !!!

Never try this before. I think its taste exactly like pau, right? I guess maybe added some pandan juice in it.

看起來很可愛,想必是非常地好吃。似乎馬來西亞食物很喜歡用PANDAN flour,做出清新的綠色點心。

I am hokkien but never heard of this bun before but it look very similar plain bun we used to eat when we were young but they were pink in color. We call them 'hee pan'. Do you think they are the same?

Hi all, recipe posted, try it out, let me know the result ya. FYI, Hokkian peoples also use this bun to pray God when any celebration. This is an original recipe from Nasi Lemak Lover, yahoo..

ICook4fun, yes, they are the same, that one we use to buy from outside is pink color.Since this is homemade, so I want something healthy, so I use pandan instead.But I never know it call as "hee pan" in Hokkian, let me check with my mum.

Sonia said...

Bakeling, yes yes, this plain bun is perfect match with a cup of Kopi O...

I've eaten this before (if I remember correctly) but didn't know it has a really cute name. Ki Ka Ku sounds like a cartoon character out of a Japanese comic book :D

Keats The Sunshine Girl said...

Such eagerness! - a recipe given over the phone and presto! buns to eat!! Well done!

A Full-Timed Housefly said...

Sonia 你真本事 !佩服佩服 !

Sonia said...

Petite, hahaha, after you mentioned, I also feel like Japanese name. But I found out later, this actually is a type Hakka kuih- called Hee bun..

Keats of sunshine girl and A full timed housefly, Thank you.

hi!am wondering what kind of cooking oil do you use? because i used peanut cooking oil and the smell of the peanut was very strong in the bun after steaming..am not too sure whether it's because of the oil or because i did not use enough pandan leaves

Anonymous said...

hello, i tried your recipe and it was very nice. however, the surface of my kuih wrinkled very badly when i remove the cover after steaming, thus resulting in an ugly surface. any idea what could be the cause? thanks

Hi, may I know if the yeast used in this recipe is the instant type or?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Hi anonymous, yes , use instant type.
