Kuih layang layang

I love these tiny crunchy sugary…what can I call it, spring roll snails? They are super easy to make and takes only a few minutes to fry.

See some photos and a video here if you need to know how to roll them!

 

RECIPE FOR KUIH LAYANG LAYANG

Ingredients

1 Packet spring roll  (20 sheets)
Caster sugar
Oil (for deep frying)
Water & a bit of cornstarch (as glue)
 

Method

1. Using 1 bamboo skewer (BBQ sticks) as a guide, put it at the edge of the spring roll sheet and start rolling as small as you can.  When you reach the end, dab some glue and press gently to close the flap. See photos here for guidance
2. Cut diagonally (this is purely for looks) and set aside in a large bowl. Repeat step 1 & 2 until all sheets have been rolled and cut.
3. In a medium sized wok, heat oil. Once heated, fry them until golden brown. This should take less than 5 minutes. Repeat until all have been fried.
4. Let cool and smother with caster sugar. Yes. Don’t be afraid of sugar. Its Eid :p

London Almond | Biskut Raya

This is one of my favorite kuih raya (eid cookies) and every Malaysian would know this biscuit! Don’t ask why its called “London Almond”, because it has not association to London what so ever lol! But its bloody awesome ait (Brit accent :P )

 

LONDON ALMOND RECIPE
Adapted from this recipe with slight modifications

Ingredients

Biscuit
250gram butter, room temperature
125gram caster sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
100 gram cornflour
100 gram custard powder
300 gram plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
220-250 gm roasted almonds

Finishing touches
700 gram cooking chocolate (more or less)
2 tbsp butter
1 cup of crushed nuts (to decorate)
100 or so mini cupcake cases

Method

1. In a food processor,beat butter and sugar until fluffy.

2. Add the egg & vanilla essence and pulse a few times until incorporated.

3. In a bowl, sift plain flour, custard powder, cornflour and baking powder and then add it to the food processor. I dont bother adding bit by bit, I just let my food processor do its thang!

4. Once fully incorporated, transfer to a bowl, scrape down the sides of the food processor. Then cover the bowl with a cling wrap and refrigerate until it hardens a bit. The reason you let the dough go a bit hard is because it’ll be too soft when it comes out of the processor and you wont be able to handle the dough as its too sticky.

5. Preheat oven to 160 degrees celcious (with fan) and in the meantime, remove the dough from the fridge and shape the dough into tiny 20cent pieces. Fill each one with an almond inside and cover it up. Follow the elongated almond shape.

6. Bake for 20mins. Repeat until all of them are done.Let cool

7. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate with butter. Once melted all over, dip each biscuit and then transfer to a cupcake case. Add a pinch of crushed nuts to finish.
