Black Glutinous Ang Ku Kuih ( Aka Purple Sweet Potato soft cake )
I have always wanted to make the black glutinous rice flour Ang ku Kuih. I was hoping the color of this kuih will be dark shining black . However the result is more a dark purple kuih. When I planned to make this kuih another traditional biscuit was in my mind , so I decided to do a mung bean fillings. The half of this mung bean fillings is used for another recipe ( I hope I can update it soon ) .
For the Mung bean fillings I follow the recipe from Nasi Lemak Lover
400g peeled Mung Bean ( The one I bought is already peeled , soaked overnight)
250g caster sugar
Dash of white pepper
1/2 Onion ( original recipe called for shallot) - Finely chop.
4-5 Tbsp of vegetable oil
1. Combine Mung bean , sugar and salt in a large metal bowl. Mixed well and steam on medium heat for 30min.
2. Once Mung Bean is easy to mash , off the fire and mash mung bean to fine. I used blender to blend it , make sure is not too finely blended
3. Heat up the vegetable oil in a wok and stir fried the onion till brown, set aside for later used.
4. In the same wok pour in the mash mung bean and stir fried on low heat till is dry and able to form a ball.
5. Remove from heat and pour in the fried onion and mix well with the mung bean mash.
6. Divide and shape the mung bean into ball shape for later used.

6. Once finished moulding all the kuih, steam the kuih in a wok with medium heat for 2 min , open the lid let the hot air off closed lid, continue to steam for another 2min , open the lid again and close it to steam for another 1 min.
7. Take the kuih out and brush some cooking oil onto it. Let the kuih cool and serve .
I have 2 size of mould . one is tiny one another is consider medium.
For small mould - weigh 11g dough and 9g fillings

The kuih is soft and the fillings is just nice sweetness. I have a few freeze and when have the kuih steam back is still soft and yummy.
