So for a few days, I whispered to myself daily….”In order to appreciate positives, we have to embrace the negatives. When there is failure, then we appreciate success.”
As part of making Kueh Salat, not only do we need to steam the glutinous rice, the custard topping needs to be stirred constantly till it becomes like a creamy looking thick custard. Pour it into the glass pyrex pan, steam it and da-duh, beautiful looking kueh.
Of course, I was distracted (haha, sorry was going through abit of a stress week that particular week!),as I was also making”Lo Mai Kai” (Steam Glutinous Rice with Soya Pork and Mushrooms) at around the same time frame. I was trying to make use of my packet of glutinous rice as much as possible. Not that we are going to finish everything but just to share it with family and friends.
So the custard became lumpy and overcooked just as I glance over to check. It’s too late though. Can’t be salvaged.. and the lumpy custard was poured into the tray… steamed.. My heart goes out to the custard! Poor custard, it wasn’t meant to be!
back to the drawing board with this one….
