Kuih Lapis

kuih lapis recipes

A visually delightful and simply tasteful dessert, kuih lapis means many layers and is therefore characterized by several layers in different colors. Kids usually love to eat it by peeling off the individual layers. Excellent idea to impress your guests, beats serving cake anytime!


300 ml coconut milk
600 ml water
1/2 cup plus 9 tsp sugar
3 tbsp tapioca flour
1 1/2 cup rice flour
1/4 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients with a wire whisk.  Divide the mixture into 3 or 2 bowls. Color them as preferred.Prepare a steaming tray ( I used a 8 in tray) grease slightly.  Pour 1/2 cup of mixture. Steam on a slow heat for about 4 - 6 minutes. Open cover, wipe, pour the next color. Repeat till all is done.  The final top layer ( whichever color is on the top, color it a little darker before pouring the last layer)
