Kuih Kaswi Pandan/ Kuih Kosui Pandan 香兰卡穗糕

I made this Kuih Kaswi Pandan talam style (in a tray) and then cut it into individual pieces. This is how it is supposed to be; cut and rolled in fresh shredded coconut. Some does it in mini cups that makes it similar to Kuih Lompang. Similar but not the same. The main difference besides its appearance is the flour used. Kuih Kaswi uses wheat flour whereas Kuih Lompang does not. Taste wise, there is not much of a difference. If you are curious about Kuih Lompang, I blogged about it here a couple of years ago.

Kuih Kaswi Pandan is a traditional Malaysian/Indonesian delicacy. Like most of our local desserts, it uses plenty of coconut and pandan leaves (screwpine leaves). There is another variation that uses gula melaka (palm sugar) that is equally as good. Kuih Kaswi Pandan has a dense and bouncy texture . It is sweet with a hint of saltiness from the salted shredded coconut. It is also spelled Kuih Kosui.
