Kuih Lompang Gula Melaka 椰糖碗粿

I have too many gula Melaka at the pantry, some given by my friend and some bought by my hubby. So use some to make this kuih Lompang, it tasted like dodol (Malay sticky rice cake), yum yum..

Kuih Lompang Gula Melaka 椰糖碗粿
*makes ~14pcs (depend tea cup size)

70g rice flour
30g tapioca flour
1 cylinder block (~118g) Gula Melaka, chopped
350ml water
1/4tsp alkaline water
3pcs pandan leaves, knotted

50g freshly grated coconut
A pinch of salt

1.      In a pot, combine gula Melaka and water, cook over medium heat until sugar completely dissolved and become syrup. Remove from heat, strained. Set aside to cool.
2.      Combine rice flour and tapioca flour in a mixing bowl, add in gula Melaka syrup and alkaline water, mix become batter, strain it.
3.      Prepare the steamer, place tea cups (greased with cooking oil) inside, bring water to boil and pre-heat tea cups for few minutes.
