Putu Piring Tengkera

Putu Piring is local Malay delicacy. It uses rice flour with palm sugar or 'Gula Melaka' in the middle. There's one particular shop in Tengkera that really excel in cooking it. Well, they are even featured in a local tv show and came out in newspapers. The uniqueness of this shop is that the putu piring made there is relatively larger in size compare to other shops or stall and they use a lot of the gula melaka and freshly grated coconut. Combination of these ingredients makes the putu piring one of the best you can find in Melaka or maybe, in Malaysia too?

Here how they cook their putu piring: Rice flour is placed in a mould and then the 'Gula Melaka' (quite alot) in the middle. Then top with another layer or or rice flour. Putu Piring is cooked in special a 'steamer' for about 5 minutes. After it is done, the owner sprinkled a generous amount of freshly grated coconut on it and placed a square shaped banana leaf on it. Finally, the putu piring is turn upside down and tada ~ A hot and steamy and ever delicious 'kuih' or cake is done.

If you follow a food tv show "Taste with Jason" or "阿贤人情味" previously, you might see before an episode featuring this stall. Here's video of about it.
