Testing..testing! I've been testing with some natural colours on my Angku Kueh. And guess what? I found the most beautiful red colour!! Yeah!!
With the same recipe but different ingredients for the pastry.
YES! Beetroot (红菜头) it is! I'm so excited when the colour turns out beautifully...awesome!!!
Perfect red from the Beetroot.....
Yellowish Sweet potatoes....
See the beautiful RED from the beetroot.
All I used was...200g beetroot (cooked and blended), mix into the pastry ingredients. Then knead evenly. The colour is actually dark red-purple before steam.
** add some water into the cooked beetroot for easy blending
** when using beetroot for the pastry, please note that you may not need all the 200ml water called for the recipe.
Oh I just love the colour. What do you think?
And the same old ones (yellowish) with sweet potatotes. Couldn't find the purple sweet potatoes, or else I'll have 3 beautiful colours here...;p Oh I just love this kueh...;)
