Wow! The last time I had this kuih was about 3-4 years ago.. That's quite a while already! The last one I had was so tasty that nothing else I found could beat it taste wise. I did not want to try to bake it as back then it was easy for me to get hold of these goodies. Once in a while, I will stumble upon a recipe that's similar to the one I like but it'll end up in one of my many scrapbooks and folders. There are also some "Sugi Brunei" on sale, tapi tak sama lah dengan the ones I pernah makan...
A few days ago, while searching the Net, I found a few recipes for Kuih Mor Brunei. The recipes I found differ a little from each other. So what I did was to "mix-and-match" them...macam jadi rojak pulak!! The final result was nice and it turned out to be the "melt in the mouth" kind!
I guess this kuih is similar to kuih makmur or the biskut arab, just slight difference here and there. Some people bake using butter, but I still prefer the original taste and smell using melted ghee. One fine day, I am still going to get to eat and taste the original from Brunei! Since I am on that topic, I also miss the buah tarab, ambuyat and the many lauk-lauk yang nyaman and not forgetting Pasar Tamu. I am soo going to Brunei..hahaha..
Back to Kuih Mor, here's the recipe I used,
400 gm plain flour
a pinch of salt
2 egg yolks - lightly beaten
140-150 gm ghee - melted
2-3 tblsp icing sugar
Coating : Icing sugar + milk powder (this is optional)
Preheat oven to 150C and bake for about 20-25 mins. Mix flour, salt, sugar and beaten egg. Gradually pour in the melted ghee and mix well. Knead dough till a little smooth. Roll out into small balls. Once baked, leave aside to cool a little. When still a little warm, roll out the balls into the icing sugar (+ milk powder) mixture. And then, dah boleh dimakan! Enjoy!
