Putu Piring


This is how they are steammed..


The yummy end product

Found this stall at Kelana Jaya, near the old Giant. There were a row of stalls selling snacks on a weekend afternoon.
Putu piring is one of the kuehs you can find in Malay night markets or markets. I am not very sure on the ingredients. It looks like rice powder or flour, mixed with 'gula melaka' or thick brown sugar. After they steam in the round containers, they become the soft white puffs you see above. Topped with coconut crubs, when you bite into it, you can taste the sweetness of the brown sugar. 
As usual on all my posts on food...cool and yummy huh :)

They look delicious. I love "gula melaka" and coconut together.

How does the rice cake taste like? Does it taste like the chinese steamed "pau"?
