Agar Agar Gudir Recipe @

A popular dessert during  fasting month made with agar agar powder and  coconut milk.

This Agar Agar Gudir tastes even better with addition of  gula melaka (palm sugar),  If using this sugar you need not add any coloring at all.

Bought a red color agar2 powder so I use white sugar.  Make sure to purchase a colorless pack if you intend to add palm sugar.

The secret to a perfect Agar Agar  Gudir are:

1.  Sugar must be dissolved completely and it should be rolling boiling before you add coconut,

2,  After adding  egg mixture, it should be boiled until  the eggs curdle into  tiny bits.  This would make your Agar Agar  into 2 layers and looks very pretty.

Bingka Roti (Homemade Bread Pudding) Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.comB

Bingka Roti - A baked dessert using bread slices, eggs, milk and plain flour that was firmer and easy to slice.

I have a few slices of stale bread lying on the counter.  To rescue those bread  am making a bread pudding or Bingka Roti.

This Bingka Roti was slightly different from my earlier bread pudding recipe. as it was firmer and easy to slice due to addition of plain flour.

You can choose other add ins such as sweet corn, jack fruit or banana.   Also  instead of milk, opt for coconut milk instead.

Classic Bread Pudding Recipe @

This Classic Bread Pudding is an easy dessert using a stale bread soaked in a milky egg mixture.

I used to make it using my white sandwich  bread, crust removed then cubed, but today I made this Classic Bread Pudding with multi grain bread, cut the slice into half length wise.

Also baked this pudding in my  9 x 11 in  baking pan instead of the heavy glass dish.  It does not matter what utensil you choose, it still turns out great.  The advantage of using a glass dish is that it can go from oven straight to dining table.

It can be customize to your liking by adding cinnamon, nutmeg or lemon zest.  If you are a chocolate lover, add a cup of  chopped bittersweet chocolate or add in fruits like banana (2),  blueberry, strawberry, raspberry (2 cup) or dried fruit (1 cup) just before baking.

This simple  Classic Bread Pudding came out beautiful and and  taste exactly the same  I enjoyed as a child.

Bread Paratha

This  Raisin Bread Pudding is a dish you can make again and again, as it's versatile enough so you can be a bit creative with it each time.

Could not do more than one layer since my baking dish is 9 x 13 in but a smaller dish allows you to get more layers.

Also added sliced bananas, this is entirely up to you.  Other fruits can be added for flavor and to enhance the look of the pudding.

There are many recipes for bread pudding and several are served with a sauce.  As the pudding itself is delicious on its own, the sauce is something not used.  This recipe is wonderful without the sauce but the sauce made it absolutely delectable.

Rice Flour Pudding Recipe @

I always love pudding especially made with coconut milk. It has a special sweet flavor that you can't get with whole milk. After long time, my son requested to make corn pudding this weekend. So have sent him to purchase the most important ingredient for making the pudding,  sweet corn.

I'm aghast and extremely disappointed when he brought home  a can of  corn, guess what?  It's cut young corn. So I have to devise my plan for making another pudding.

This Rice Flour pudding comes into my mind. Have other obstacle, no fruit is available to add in, so go ahead making Rice Flour Pudding without any fruit.

So glad my son really enjoyed having this soft, sweet and creamy pudding.  We completed them in one sitting.

You can make this Rice Flour Pudding firmer by reducing the amount of liquid so as to facilitate easy slicing. Have used one cup of coconut cream or thick coconut milk but if  much creamier flavor  is required, do add more coconut  cream but cut down the water used.  For healthier option, white sugar can be replaced with palm sugar.

Soy Milk Jelly Recipe @

A nutritious and refreshing  dessert made with soy milk. I had use a store bought and mildly sweetened soy milk but if you can get hold of unsweetened ones that is so much better.

Also added about a cup of  sliced canned peaches but this is optional, feel free to choose other fruit of your choice. This fruit enhance the flavor and make it prettier too.  Serve your guest with a beautiful  jelly set in a smaller jelly mould.

Soy milk can be a healthy alternative to diary milk for people who are lactose-intolerant or vegan.

Chocolate Semolina Pudding Recipe @

This is the easiest dessert you can make,  though it involves a constant stirring on stove top, to satisfy your sweet craving. Made of semolina,  unsweetened cocoa powder, low fat  milk and condensed milk. Adding the condensed milk is optional but it does improve the flavor of this Chocolate Semolina Pudding.

Dry roast the semolina to remove its raw taste and any lump until it turns slightly darker color. This pudding is so much healthier since the sugar is kept to a minimum. This creates  a deliciously smooth , slightly sweet  and satisfying  dessert!

Koleh Koleh / Green Bean Pudding Recipe @

Koleh Koleh / Green Bean Pudding Recipe @

It is a traditional dessert of Malaysia and Singapore, made of green bean flour, coconut milk and palm sugar. If  palm sugar unavailable, you can use dark brown  sugar instead.

This can be prepared by steaming or stirring over stove top until thicken. I use 2nd method. Traditionally they are garnished with coconut crumbs but I omit this, just sprinkle with toasted sesame seed for garnish.

My mum used to prepare them but at that time, you can't get the green bean flour so you've to do it from scratch. It's tedious process but it tasted fabulous  and so fragrant. Now I tried to re-create them using Zarinah Anwar's recipe from the book called The MPH Cookbook.
