My Snack

Have been craving for kuehs lately. Guess I've gain some weight these few days..hee hee..;p
Well what's new today? Nope, its just the kueh koci I've posted sometime ago. But I've used some "Bunga Telang" from a friend which I've treasured it for quite sometime. Thanks alot Sonia for the flowers...:)

Okay what I've done to the kueh? I've pound some bunga telang then mix with some water and strain to get the blue colouring. The colour looks really blue and lovely. Somehow, the result was not what I expected..;p Guess I have to used potatoes instead of pumpkins..:)

See what I mean, then beautiful blue has become greenish when mix with the pumpkin..*sigh*.
Texture still good but the outlook is abit weird i guess..haha! Anyway all are natural colours..:)

Here's the dough before wrapping.....

Get the recipe from my old post if you are interested.

Eventhough the shape and colour are not so attractive, but the filling was superlicious..:) Juicy coconut with the fragnant of gula melaka....yummy!

Happy Baking!


  1. Haha Reese, it's Bunga Telang or 'Blue Pea' flower! Looks like the marbling effect on my grandma's jade!

  2. hee hee Quinn,
    Is it bunga telang or bunga talam? But I search my nyonya book, it stated bunga talam wo....@_@". Anyway....:)

  3. Interesting yea the bunga telang turns green after you steamed it. Doesn't matter if it is green or blue I am sure it tasted great. I have yet to use the bunga telang that Sonia gave me :)
