Bengawan Solo Kueh Bangkit

Fragrant, delicate coconut cookies that melt in your mouth

Another favorite treat at Chinese New Year is Kueh Bangkit – a melt-in-your-mouth coconut cookie made with coconut milk, tapioca flour, pandan leaves, sugar, and eggs. While the ingredients may seem simple, the execution is an art. The key to a good Kueh Bangkit is its melt-in-your-mouth quality that is achieved by stir-frying the flour with pandan leaves to remove any trace of moisture, beating the eggs and sugar until they are light and frothy, and creating a dough that is neither too sticky nor too dry. We like to leave this feat to the experts such as the ones at Bengawan Solo, a local confectionery shop with an impressive range of kuehs and cakes. They have two versions: the Gula Melaka Kueh Bangkit made with palm sugar which imparts a caramel-ish richness, and the Indonesian Kueh Bangkit which was their original version.
