How we miss all the traditional sweet treats that we have back home during this fasting month. i miss kuih bakar jagong, agar agar, kuih talam, lepat pisang..
I remember when i was in school, a restaurant called Sedap Corner in jb used to have the best seri muka in town. now, i'm pretty sure lots of other places have beaten them to it.
Hardy has a soft spot for all the malay traditional cakes. and as soon as i mentioned kuih bakar jagong and kuih seri muka, he straight away went to the computer and search for the recipe.
Something is definitely wrong with my kuih seri muka. no complaints from Hardy though. but the top bit i think was overcooked. and being me, i dont really fancy using the scales, decided to just follow my instincts (which in some cases doesnt work). i didnt follow what Hardy read to me and added a little bit more flour (how silly was that?).
Anyway, told mum and dad about it and the first thing they said was, the real deal and the real traditional way to make this kuih is by not using flour. use plenty of eggs. they promised to make some for us, their version of it. so until then, i shall leave you to this for the time being.
