Ingredients for blue butterfly pea mochi layer:
2 1/4 cups (250g) glutinous rice, soaked overnight
1/3 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp Suncore Foods® Rose Salt
5g Suncore Foods® Butterfly Pea Flowers Superbloom
1/3 cup boiling water
Ingredients for green pandan custard layer:
2-3 tsp Suncore Foods® Emerald Pandan Leaf Supercolor Powder
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup all purpose flour
3 tbsp tapioca flour
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/3 cup sugar
200ml coconut milk
1/4 tsp Suncore Foods® Rose Salt
1. Blue Butterfly Pea Mochi Layer – Make an extract with the butterfly pea flowers and boiling water. Place the flowers and water in a heat resistant bowl. Let it soak for 10 mins until the water turns dark blue. Drain well to extract all the liquid. Combine salt and coconut milk. Mix coconut milk with soaked glutinous rice. Place a knotted pandan leaf on the glutinous rice and steam for 30 mins. . Pour blue pea flower water (in patches) over the rice and continue streaming for 10 mins or until cooked. Once glutinous rice is cooked, transfer to an oiled (8.5 x 4.5 x 2.75 inch) pan. Compact glutinous rice, firmly and evenly.
2. Green Pandan Custard Layer – Blend the Pandan leaves with water and strain the Pandan juice, set aside. In a large bowl combine custard ingredients, add Pandan juice and whisk until smooth. Stir mixture in a saucepan over low heat until it turns slightly thickened. Remove pot from stove and mix thoroughly. Strain mixture through a fine mesh sieve. Pour pandan mixture onto compacted glutinous rice. Steam for about 30 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for at least 4 hours before slicing. Use an oiled knife to slice cake.
