Turtle??? actually its call ” wu gui gao, 乌龟糕” in Chinese means turtle because the shapes look like turtle and its a traditional cake made from glutinous rice flour and mix with green bean paste. kinda weird when we made it. ( this was my first time…nervous >////<) yeaaa…i know my “turtle is super UGLY, but the process is fun because its like playing a plasticine.
(before steam) ugly but taste good !
( From beginning to the end its totally a happy disaster :D)and our glutinous rice cake is totally in experiment stage ! )(Laugh)
***please don’t scared by my picture :D, the cake actually is super tasty and its suppose to look like this~~~
- 500 g glutinous rice flour (put some coloring inside)
- 4 tsp sugar
- 4 tsp oil
- 250g mung beans/green beans
- 140g sugar
- 3tbsp cooking oil
Method 1. Brush the mould with some cooking oil ( the glutinous rice wont stick in the mould) 2. Flatten the bean, place a mung bean ball, cover and shape into round ball. 3. Place the ball in the mould, press evenly, then knock out and place on greased banana leaf. 4. Arrange on a steaming tray and steam for 10mins over high flame.
