Kuih Bingka Beras (肥豬肉)

Kuih Bingka Beras (肥豬肉)

It has been a very long time since I last wrote on my blog. Today I decided it is time I start again after being unwell.

I chose to post this old Nonya kuih – Bingka Beras. This seem to be a forgotten Nonya Kuih which I love with all my heart. As a young child I remember wanting this always whenever I was taken to the morning market where the hawker sold this. I just love the aroma of the coconut with the slightly burnt bits on top! The coconut sweetness, the banana leaves smell, the slightly caramelized top and sometimes the taste of a bit of bitter burns is FABULOUS. I just <3 <3 <3 this “fei chui yuk” aka fat pork belly, in Cantonese because they resemble a piece of fat pork.

Luckily my husband, though British born and bred loves all kuih-muih. Makes life a lot easier for me. I can make a kuih and he’ll eat it all day long and I don’t need to cook anything else.

This kuih is so easy to make so I hope those who have rice flour handy will try it out. Especially more so now we are still staying at home. This lockdown due to Covid19 have seen such a lot more baker, home chefs, gardeners, hairdresser, dressmakers as well as teachers 😀 😀 😀 and many other skills. Amazing what we can do when we have to.

TIP – Melt some butter and mix with the reserved 1 tbsp coconut milk. Brush on top of the kuih for that extra ummmph before you grill. kekekekeke

    Super good recipe, I succeed upon my first attempt! Thanks so much Julie for your detailed steps with photos too! ????

  • Hey Julie, I put it in the over for 40 minutes + the 10 mins grill but it wasn’t very solid when I took it out. I baked for an additional 15 minutes but it was more or less the same. What am I doing wrong here because I used all the ingredients listed and did accordingly to the steps but my kuih won’t cook. I really love the smell though. Wish it was thoroughly cooked.
