Kuih Lapis

I HATE getting the cough...the thing abt the cough and me, it wouldnt just last a week. I could be coughing for more than a month! And it's so damn annoying, especially at night. .. can't sleep.

It all started yesterday while I was munching on "Muruku".. I know.. I know I shouldn't be munching in the first place but oh well I did it.. this couple days I hv been eating like a pig.. menses around the corner.. attitude problem.. mood swing...body aching.. tired.. yikes!! Anyway while munching Muruku I accidently choked on it.. it was so so bad that I had to keep on drinking water... since then I hadnt stop coughing... sigh

Anyway last night bef I went to bed... abt the same time my "guest blogger" invaded my blog.. I decided to prepare a simple kuih for todays breakfast... hb likes it.. to me.. its not sweet enough but hb said the sweetness is just right.. oh well.. probably its just the coughing acting up on me!.. I gave mom the rest of the kuih to be shared among her neighbours..

1 1/2 cup flour
3 tbsp rice flour
2 tbsp corn flour
1 cup sugar
5 cup coconut milk (i used 350ml KARA and top the rest with water)
1 tsp salt
red colouring and a few drops of rose essence

Combine dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Pour in coconut milk mix well. Strain the batter to ensure it is free from lumps.
Divide batter into two equal portion and add red colouring and rose essence to one part
Place a greased 8 inch tray in the steamer and heat up for 4–5 minutes.
Steam the batter layer by layer. Pour the 1st layer of batter on the heated tray. Cover and steam over medium heat for 5 minutes or until set.
Follow by the next color and steam for 5 minutes and then the next layer.
Repeat the procedure, alternating the color until all the batter is used up.
After the final layer is set, steam the kuih for a further 20 minutes.
Cool the kuih thoroughly before cutting into it.
