Kuih Tako (also known as Kuih Limas)

Coconut milk is a staple of Malaysian cuisine especially during festivals. For convenience, try using Ayam Brand’s coconut milk that are hygienically squeezed from selected ripe coconuts and sealed in convenient tetra packs using UHT technology.

Kuih Tako or Kuih Limas is similar to Kuih Tepung Pelita but usually has a sweet or crunchy surprise hidden inside that makes it a favourite with everyone. Here’s a simplified version from Ayam Brand that has sweet corn and water chestnuts as the secret filling for texture and fibre!

Method

The first step is to make 30 pandan cases – this is a fun activity that children can help with. Next, prepare the base by combining green bean flour, sugar, salt and water. Cook on low heat until thickened, then turn off the heat. Add some water chestnuts in each pandan case, then pour in the base mixture and allow it to cool and set.

In another pot, make the topping by combining coconut milk, green bean flour and water until thickened. Adding the topping to the set base and decorate with a teaspoon of corn in each pandan case. Allow to set in the fridge – perfect for that Buka Puasa or Raya dessert.
