INGREDIENTS

  • 2 large eggs
  • β…“ cup sugar (70g)
  • β…” cup coconut milk (160ml)
  • 1β…“ cup rice flour (170g)
  • ΒΌ tsp salt
  • 2 inches vegetable oil for deep frying

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Combine eggs and sugar in a large bowl. Break up the egg yolks with a whisk. Pour in coconut milk and stir to combine.
  • Add rice flour and salt. Mix well with the whisk until a smooth batter forms.
  • Strain batter into a deep bowl.
  • Warm up about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a small saucepan or pot over medium low heat. Stick a pair of chopsticks into the hot oil. If you see tiny bubbles appearing near the chopsticks, the oil is ready.
  • Gently lower brass Kuih Loyang mold into hot oil for 30 seconds to heat the mold. Remove from hot oil and shake off excessive oil.
  • Dip the hot mold 7/8th of the way into prepared batter. Make sure the batter does not go over the top of the mold. You will hear a sizzle. Shake off excess batter and submerge the mold back into the hot oil but do not touch the base of the pot.
  • After about 10 seconds, gently shake the mold to release the half-cooked batter. If it will not release, use a long cooking chopstick to push it down.
  • Fry to a light golden brown color. Remove and place on a strainer or a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excessive oil.
  • Repeat until all batter is used up.
  • Allow them to cool completely before storing in airtight containers.

NOTES

  1. You can fry 3 at a time if you can work fast. Takes about 45 seconds to fry each batch.
  2. If you have a traditional brass mold like mine, it helps to wrap the tip of the handle with string because it can get hot.
