Kuih Cara Berlauk
Malaysian cuisine may be an unfamiliar 'palate territory' to some, so I made a quick video on how to make and enjoy these morsels. A foodie food adventure... enjoy :D

Kuih Cara Berlauk


    150g plain flour
    300ml water
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    100ml coconut cream
    1 teaspoon custard powder
    1 teaspoon white pepper
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon oil

1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/4 tablespoon chopped ginger
2 tablespoon meat curry powder
150g minced chicken 
500 g cooked prawns - peeled and devein
1 tablespoon water

Heat up oil in wok and saute the chopped garlic and ginger until fragrant.
Add minced chicken.
Keep stirring and add curry powder with 1 tablespoon of water.
Stir until the chicken is cook.

  1. Combine all the ingredients under 'batter' in a mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk and mix well.
  3. Put it aside.
  4. If you have the 'Kuih Cara' mould ~ heat up the mould (stove top), brush with oil and spoon the batter half way up the mould. 
  5. And if you dont have one... use frying pan instead (make into pikelet size).
  6. Top up the batter with the cooked chicken and cooked prawns.
  7. Cover and cook using low heat until 'Kuih Cara' is cooked through.
  8. Serve with thinly sliced spring onions and chilli.
