Recipe Ingredient

  • 1 1/2 cups ready-made pandan lotus seed paste
  • Sesame seeds and oil
  • Water dough (A):
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp shortening
  • 3-4 tbsp water
  • Oil dough (B):
  • 1/2 cup cake flour, sifted
  • 3 tbsp shortening


  1. For the water dough, sift the flour and sugar together and rub in the shortening. Gradually add water until mixture comes together. Knead 3-4 minutes until smooth. For the oil dough, combine the ingredients and press into a ball. Cover both dough and set aside for 30 minutes; divide each into four equal portions.
  2. Preheat oven at 190°C. On a lightly floured surface, flatten water dough and wrap it around oil dough to enclose. Roll out into a thin oval. Starting from the short end, roll it up like a Swiss roll; give the dough a quarter turn. Repeat the rolling process once, finally shaping the pastry into a rough rectangle. Do the same with the remaining dough.
  3. Spread a quarter of the lotus seed paste on one half of each rectangle; fold the other half over. Brush with a little oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 15-20 minutes until puffed and golden (traditionally, this pastry is deep-fried). Serve cut into slices.
