Kueh Kosui

I made this 2 weeks ago and brought it for a mini-family gathering. The intention was to meet up with Sister E's family at Hort Park, then pack dinner back for our parents. However, Dad wanted to eat out at his favourite coffeeshop @ Alexandra Village so we arranged to meet there for dinner instead. While waiting for our food to be served, we had Kueh Kosui as appetiser. This is the first time my parents try this kueh and I'm glad they like it :)

I've made this several times and everytime, I use grated coconut (pre-packed) from a local supermarket. Sister E commented that the coconut is too coarse. I deliberately got DH to buy the grated coconut from a dry market. However, it was grated with the testa/endocarp and Sister E asked why can't I buy grated coconuts without it?? Eh, but that's how it's being sold, and I'm not like buying 1 whole coconut. It's so difficult to please this sister of mine :P

The thing I like about this recipe is, it is still soft straight from the fridge, no thawing required. And credit goes to Aunty A for sharing this recipe with me ^-^

Last evening, I decided we should go back to my parents today and I did a quick check on my ingredients, I've got everything minus the grated coconut. Sister E did this with toasted oats before and since the dry market is already closed, I decided to try out her method. The taste is not as fragrant as grated coconut but I do like the taste of it. What's more, this makes the kueh a healthier option now. However, Dad only took 1 piece today and kept the balance in the fridge :-(
