Mom has always been the main chef in our home and also in the marketplace for decades and we always enjoyed her exceptional culinary skills.
But since dad went home, she hasn't been really touching anything from the kitchen much.
Except this very special day
It was my aunt's 81st birthday and this gave mom enough reason to head over to the kitchen again.
She made this special inspired Malaysian kueh called "seri muka" (beautiful face) where the original form is pandan flavoured custard top with sweeten glutinouse rice with coconut milk; but instead of the usual ingredients, her creativity sparked and made a tweaked version in jelly form!
She also purposefully made it less sweet so that everyone will enjoy it better after a hearty meal; with the pandan leaf at the top as garnish.#aliveandthriving
So proud of my mom! 🥰#foodiesbeehive
