Steamed Tapioca Kueh

I did many things yesterday like banana muffins, cheng tng, chocolate cake, steamed tapioca. No picture to show except for the steamed tapioca. This is one of my favourite kueh. I have kept some w/o the shredded coconut coating which my domestic helper enjoys a lot.

Hi hugbear,

I would like to try out this recipe. Could you tell me what is vanilla powder & where I can get it? I'm from Singapore.

Hi Anonymous, thanks. You can get vanila powder from any bakery supplies shop like Phoon Huat, Sun Lik, etc.

Hi Hugbear,

Thank you for your reply. I haven't seen tapioca yet, so no chance to try it out. Since the recipe requires so little vanilla powder, would leaving it out make any difference to the final taste?

With kind regards,
Your fan

Hi Lee Lee,
May i ask, do u strain out the juice from the grated tapioca?

Do u only slice the kueh after it's completely cool in the tin? I've problems removing from the tin after cook even though i've had grease it with oil b4 pouring in batter.

Astly, how to see if it's half cook when boil? if steam directly w/o boil, possible? need how long for steaming? thks
