Koleh Koleh Kacang

This was my second attempt doing koleh koleh..the first time was toooo sweeeet...this time I made sure that the sugar content is halved of the recipe given.. the first time I've got the recipe from a book..almaklumlah first time..follow exactly the same from top to bottom....end up it was too sweet and we just cant eat it (manis sampai ke otak!!)...hehe

This time alhamdullilah..suits our taste!! after adjusting the sweetness of course...

Ingredients A:-
3 cups thick coconut milk(santan kara)
1 pandan leaf
1/2 tsp salt

Ingredients B:-
300g green beans flour
4 cups water
1 tsp brown colouring(optional)I didnt use

Ingredients C:-
420-450g palm sugar(I used 300g)
1/2 cup water

Ingredients D:-
11/2 cup coconut milk
a pinch of salt

Mix B and let it for 2 hours or overnight.(I didnt do this, I just mixed on the spot and proceed).
Cook C till dissolve, let cool, strained and put aside.
Cook D till form 'tahi minyak' and put aside.
Mix A, B and C and stir well. Cook on a medium heat and keep on stirring continuously for 15-20 minutes or till it looks a bit 'oily'. When cooked, add the mixture into the tray which has been greased with oil. Flatten it and sprinkle the 'tahi minyak' on it. Let the kuih to cool then cut.

Hi, my name is Joanne. I would live to try this kuih. But what is "tahi minyan"? Also, what is this texture like? Comparable to which kuih? Thank you.

Joanne - Hi Joanne, thank you for dropping by.. tahi minyak is the outcome from cooking the coconut milk into took quite a while to cook this, basically you have to keep on stirring the coconut milk till it thickens and slowly becomes granules...the texture for which one?..the tahi minyak or the kuih?.. the tahi minyak is a bit saltish as you add some salt in it but still lemak2 ..the kuih is somehow smooth and the taste of green beans in it..i cant describe which kuih it taste like as this kuih is very unique and mostly other kuih that has the green beans powder in it ..resembles this kuih..:)
