Getas-Getas Kampung


Fried Coconut Dough coated with crystallised sugar..

aahhh.....an all time classic...believe it or not, I usually asked for this from my late nenek (Granny) everytime we went to Geylang Market back in the 70s. It may not look good but it tastes heavenly. Very nostalgic. The kids now doesn't even know what this is. I always introduce old time classic kuihs to my kids. I want them to know what their gorgeous mother consumed all these years..(hehe)..this is to ensure that the old kuihs shall always have a place in this modern world. It's very difficult to get them here except in Geylang. But its abundent during Ramadhan. So here's to the old kampung kuih!..

I actually really seriously honestly forgot where I got this recipe from. I just wrote it on some paper which has now been stamped with chilli sauce, curry stain and oil stain.

Ingredients for Dough

250g glutinous rice flour
150g grated fresh coconut(skin removed)
130ml of water
pinch of salt

Mix the above until it becomes a soft pliable dough. Roll into small balls the size of golf balls. Fashion them into an oblong and press in between your palms to flatten it. It should be the shape of an oval patty. Fry in hot oil to a golden brown.



Ingredients for Sugar Syrup

3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of water
a pandan leaf, tied to a knot

In a wok, boil the above until it's bubbly and stringy. Add in the fried dough and coat them with the syrup. Lower the fire and continue mixing and stirring till sugar crystallizes. Remove from heat and serve. Great as a teatime snack.

hai suhana salam kenalan

Mula-mula tgk kuih ni saya tak kenal tapi bila tgk resipi dan cara buatnya baru saya tahu. kalau saya panggil kuih ni dalam bahasa jawa "kemplang" tapi my mum usually buat pakai tepung pulut hitam...may be tak different in rasa tapi diffent in colour.
tapi betul kata suhana nostalgia betul
nice
