BINGKA TEPUNG BERAS
This is another traditional kuih of Malaysia/Singapore, made of rice flour, coconut milk and sugar. It is normally served either for breakfast or after completing your meal as dessert.
In the olden days, fresh coconut is used for making this dessert but now ready made coconut milk is being used.
Almost forgotten, this kuih is hardly on sale unlike kuih bakar (similar preparation) which is made of wheat flour is easily obtainable from food stalls around the country.
