- 200ml tin coconut milk and add 175ml water
- 100g castor sugar
- 1 egg, beaten lightly
- oil for deep frying
- 125g rice flour
- 125g plain flour
You need the kuih rose brass mould as show above picture.
Combine sugar and coconut milk. Use a handheld wire whisk to mix both ingredients until sugar has disolved. Add in the egg and whisk until well blended. Stir in sifted flours and mix to form a smooth batter. Strain the mixture through a wire mesh sieve to prevent any lumps. If the batter is thick, just add a little more water until the consistency is just right.
Heat oil in a wok. Put in the brass mould to heat up. When it becomes hot enough, remove the mould and dip into the batter. Make sure that the sides are coated with batter.
Return the mould to the hot oil and deep-fry the batter till its turn golden brown and crispy. Shake a little to remove the pastry from the mould. Remove the kuih rose from the oil , then drain and leave to cool on absorbent kitchen paper. Store in airtight container.
