Lopes de Sequeira.... hihihi


Just now, when sending my son and Hafiz to school, I had said to myself that I am NOT going to was my car today as I have quite a long list-to-do in mind. But when I reached home, I just parked the car near the tap, took a bucket, filled it with the car shampoo and water and the next thing I know, I was busy washing my car! But this time, I just washed ONE car... Why? Because the last time I washed both cars, it started raining heavily just an hour after I finished washing..... hahahahahaha......

Update : It rained after 6 hours I finished washing 1 car... hihihi... is there anything between me washing cars and raining? :D


My sister's friend mentioned about kuih lopes a few weeks ago and that made me craved for some as well. I've tried making lopes way back in Malawi before, using Kak Liza's recipe and it was yummy. So for this time, I thought of trying another recipe and decided to try out Tulip77's recipe posted at Myresipi dot com. I was not disappointed. The lopes was nice. Thank you Tulip77 for sharing this recipe with us.

Ingredients :

2 cups glutinous rice
2 cups thin coconut milk
1/2 cup screwpine leaves juice
1 teaspoon lime water (air kapur)
1/2 teaspoon salt
a few drops of green food coloring
freshly grated coconut mixed with a bit of salt and steam for 5 minutes

Palm Sugar Syrup :

3 pieces palm sugar
5 tablespoons sugar
3 cups water

Method :

1. Wash the rice and rinse. Soak the rice with water, green food coloring and lime water for 3 hours.
2. Blend some screwpine leaves with 1/2 cup water and put to a strainer to get the juice. I didn't do this but instead, I just mix some pandan essence and 1/2 cup of water.
3. After 3 hours, put the soaked rice through the strainer. Pour the rice into a tray together with the pandan juice. Steam for 20 minutes.
4. Remove the tray from the steamer, add in coconut milk and steam for another 30 minutes.

5. I had used the egg ring and the base of my measuring cup to shape the lopes. Place a piece of plastic under the egg ring. Spoon enough rice into the ring. Cover with plastic and press using the botton of the measuring cup or you can use the bottle cover, whichever convenient.
6. Remove from the ring and coat the shaped rice with freshly grated coconut.
7. Place the lopes on a plate and top with Palm Sugar Syrup. Enjoy!

Method for Palm Sugar Syrup:

Combine palm sugar, sugar and water in a pot and boil over moderate heat until sugar dissolves. Strain.

Have a nice day!
