Kuih cara is made up of flour, egg, and coconut milk . The mixture is mixed thoroughly before being cooked in a special mold until it hardens. There are sweet and savoury kuih cara available The savoury usually has some spiced chicken or beef added whilst the sweet ones have sweet filling in them .
