Kuih Bahulu

In the previous entry, I had followed up on Shima's comment. And this time, it'll be Farina of Salt n Turmeric's turn. She had written in the comment box, she's going to try out the Pulut Kuning. Guess what Farina, before you had the chance to try out something from my page, I had already tried something from yours and it turned out to be lovely and not only that, it's very easy to prepare as well! I had an eye on that recipe as it sounded so easy to prepare and not to mention Farina's tempting photos of the Kuih Bahulu. I made half the recipe and we enjoyed 16 cute, yummy, soft Kuih Bahulu..... Thanks Farina for the recipe and allow me to paste it here once again for others to try.....
