It only took me 2nd attempt to settle the right batter to be used. Thanks to my friend' auntie who selling CNY cookies also willing to share with me this good recipe which using rice flour and glutinous rice (interesting combo but great result).
I received six very old Kuih Kapit moulds from my elder SIL , Thanks so much to her given me these traditional moulds.
The tougher part of making Kuih Kapit, grill over charcoal..
Luckily i have my dear hubby helped me to handle the most difficult part.
Very light and crunchy , nice!

- Slowly pour in flour mixture with egg mixture, whisk till well combined. Strain the batter and let it rest for an hour.
- While batter is resting, prepare the charcoal grill at least 15mins before start making. The fire has to moderate and consistent as to get even colour of love letters.
- Lightly grease the kuih kapit mould with cooking oil (if you use old kuih kapit mould, you can omit this step), heat up the moulds over the charcoal grill.
- When the mould are sufficiently heat up, pour a ladleful of batter onto the mould. Close the mould tightly and bake over charcoal fire. Trim the run-offs from the batter with a butter knive. Flip another side over fire as to get even colour. Time to time check the doneness.
