Wajik is a popular kueh in Malaysia and Indonesia. To make Wajik, cooked sticky rice is combined well with a sweet syrupy mixture of palm sugar and coconut milk. You can find this sweet sticky rice especially during Hari Raya celebrations in some parts of Malaysia. This delectable kueh is also sometimes given away as wedding favours at traditional Malay weddings.

Kueh Lapis

Kueh Lapis gets its name from the layers that it has. Lapis actually means layer in Malay.

The pink layer is usually coloured using rose colouring while the white layer is left in its original state, white from coconut milk in the batter mixture. The batter for this kueh consists of a mixture of rice flour, tapioca flour, sugar and coconut milk. To get its layered look, the kueh is made by steaming it layer by layer.

Keria

These mini doughnuts are made from mashed sweet potato mixed with a bit of flour. The doughnuts are fried and then rolled in sugar while still warm. Although sugar is usually used to coat these yummy keria, some would use a gula melaka glaze instead.
