Recipe Ingredient

  • 250g glutinous rice flour
  • 230ml water
  • Pink and red colouring
  • Syrup:
  • 200g sugar
  • 1,200ml water
  • 3 pandan leaves, knotted
  • 2 thin slices of old ginger


  1. Put glutinous rice flour in a basin. Make a well in the centre, add water gradually and mix until a soft dough is formed. Divide dough into 3 equal portions.
  2. Leave 1 portion uncoloured, add pink colouring to another, and red to the other.
  3. Roll each portion out into a long strip, then pinch off small, equal portions; roll each small portion between the palms of both hands to form round balls.
  4. Bring the water to a boil and add the balls. When the kuih ee is cooked, they will float to the surface. Remove the balls with a wire mesh ladle or slotted spoon and drop into a basin of cold water; leave to cool, then drain.
  5. To make syrup: In a large saucepan, mix water and sugar and bring to a slow boil. When the sugar dissolves, add pandan leaves and ginger slices.
  6. Boil over low heat for 5 minutes, then add the cooked kuih ee. Bring the syrup to a boil, remove from heat, and serve as a hot or cold dessert.
