The ingredients are simple but the process is lengthy.
Recipe (make 1 medium sized and 2 small kuih bakuls)
300g Glutinous rice flour
400g brown sugar (reduce to 350g)
some banana leaves (sold in NSK or Giant)
Method : Steam in medium fire for 5 - 10 hours, depending on your patience! The longer you steam, the smell and taste is better.
|Mixed glutinous rice flour, sugar and water.|
You need to sift the batter if it gets lumpy.
|Line metal containers with banana leaves.|
You need to soften each leave by
basking over a gas stove.

Updates on the size of kuih bakul
The size of this kuih bakul is 11.5cm in diameter and 5cm in height. Recipe : 200g glutinous rice flour, 200g water and 250g brown sugar.
Note : You need to check youtube on how to line the tins properly. Otherwise the batter will leak and your kuih bakul will be in a very sticky situation and gets out of shape.
