How do i make the orange color coconut filling instead of the gula melaka (brown sugar) one as my boyfren really dislikes the brown sugar filling. Many thanks for your help

Ann@Anncoo Journal said...

I love kuih dadar too but never try to make this at home. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe, Sonia :)

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Amber, just change gula melaka to normal coarse sugar. But this change will not as authentic as that one use gula melaka.

Sonia, I love this kuih! However, here in Sweden we can't get freshly grated coconut... :( We only have the dried coconut flakes in the supermarket, do you think those are useable to make this?

hanushi said...

Wow, I am in love with the natural greenness... :)

Lady G said...

This is my favorite of all Kuehs. I also love Onde-onde. Anything with coconut and gula melaka filling would capture my appetite.

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Sylvia, I am not too sure as I never tried with dried coconut before. But I would suggest you to add more water to cook dried coconut till soften if you wish to try out. Sorry for not helping you out.

I have a suggestion to all..this kuih ketayap we can fusion it by susbstituing the coconut filling with maybe chop chocolate sauce or mixed berries.. I'm sure that it will give a unique fusion taste!
