Servings | 8 pieces
- 55g Sugar
- 110g Glutinous/sweet rice flour
- 180ml Water
- 2 tsp Any Double Lion Flavoured Concentrate (Keladi, Rose, Jagung, or Tebu preferred)
- Cornstarch, for dusting (Use less for softer results)
- 50g Butter
- 170g Grated coconut – white parts only
- 255g Brown sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 2 Pandan leaves
- 120ml Water
- 380g Flour
- Combine sugar and rice flour in a heatproof bowl. Whisk well.
- Add water while whisking rapidly. Add in Double Lion Flavoured Concentrate Keladi (remember, steaming may affect it) as well. Beware of lumps.
- Prepare steamer by pouring water into the bottom compartment.
- Light stove and place heatproof bowl on the tier.
- Place a tea towel under the lid so that condensation doesn’t drip into the mochi. Remember to tuck the corners up.
- Leave it for 5-7 minutes. Then stir the mixture well. It will be rather lumpy so just stir the best you can.
- Steam for another 15 minutes. The mochi should be slightly translucent (not floury or doughy) now. Stir and scrap everything.
- Pat some cornflour onto some baking paper or cling wrap on a flat surface. Place the hot mochi on top of the cornflour and cover it with more cornflour. The mochi will still be hot, so do not touch it immediately.
- Wait until the mochi has cooled down before flattening it. Roll it until it is about 2-4mm thin or until the thickness you prefer.
- Cut the mochi skin into circles with a 9cm cookie cutter. Flour the cutter to make cutting the sticky mochi easier.
- Place some filling in the middle of the cut mochi skin. Wrap the filling by lifting the sides of the skin up and squeezing it into a ball. Serve on a medium-size patty case.
- Boil water in a pot. Add in the brown sugar, salt and pandan leaves. Cook until the mixture dissolves.
- Add in the grated coconut. Stir until the water has dried up. Then, add in the butter and mix until it melts.
- After the filling has softened, mix in the flour to prevent stickiness and crumbly textures.
- Set aside to cool.
