Kuih Pandan Cara Manis

(21 kuihs)

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 . The kuih I had prepared today is soft with pandan flavour and pandan kaya as filling. You can use any type of sweet filling which you prefer.


100 g cake flour /can use plain flour
170ml of pandan coconut milk (see method)
1 egg (beaten lightly)
¼ tsp salt or to taste
A few drops of green colouring(optional)

Filling :
Ready Made Pandan Kaya (easily available here in cake shop or supermarket)


In a blender, add in 1 cup grated coconut, 170ml hot water mix tepid water, 3-4 screwpine leaves (cut into a few parts) and blend it . Sieve to obtain 170ml of pandan coconut milk !
In a clean blender, pour the coconut milk , add in the flour,salt and lightly beaten egg. Blend or pulse the mixture until well incorporated . Sieve the batter.Add in green colouring . Stir.

Heat up the Kuih Bahulu mould over a gas stove.When the mould is hot, grease the cavity with cooking oil. If you find it difficult to grease on the heat , just remove the mould ,grease and return it back on the heat .

Spoon batter into each cavity half full (about 1tbsp)

 Place  about ½ tsp of kaya filling in the centre

Spoon batter to completely cover each of the cavity. 

 Close with a lid.

 Cook till golden brown (take about 3-4mins, and no more seen uncooked (white) batter).

Remove the kuih with a skewer.

Serve warm or cold with coffee or tea.

When you are doing the second batch , grease the mould again , stir the batter before pouring .
