Indonesian Style: Talam Ebi/Dried Shrimp steamed cake


One of my and my mother favourite Kue/snacks/dessert, I often buy at home. Today, I had a chance to make Talam Ebi by my own :). Reference: Sedap Sekejap, Kue Tradisional, I modified the recipe a little bit.



Ingredients:
first layer
75 g rice flour + 100 ml hot water
50 g rice flour
50 g tapioca flour
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
300 ml coconut milk
second layer2 tbsp rice flour
1 tbsp tapioca flour

125 ml coconut milk
1/6 tsp salt

Top Layer
50 g dried shrimp, soak in hot water, drain the water then grind
2 cloves garlic, fried then grinded
1 tbsp sugar
salt to taste
2 chillies, sliced

1 tbsp chopped celery or thinly sliced green onion
2 tbsp cooking oil

direction:
first layer: place 75 g rice flour in a medium bowl. Pour in boiled water then stir until thickens. Add 50 g rice flour+50 g tapioca flour then gently fold into coconut milk, stir until mix well. Sift the mixture. Drop about two rounded spoonfuls of mixture on to lightly greased small bowl ceramics approx. 4 cm in diameter or an easy way just pour into a greased baking tray. Steam for 10 minutes. Meanwhile make second layer, combine all together the ingredients. Add the second mixture. Steam again for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the steamer. Sprinkle top with stir fry dried shrimp.
top layer: saute sliced chillies. Add dried shrimp,garlic, sugar, salt then chopped celery. Stir over medium to low heat until all ingredients are combined.

Without the generous dried shrimp topping, this is almost like steamed yam or carrot cake. YUm yum...
