Kuih Dadar Cooking Class – with Recipe and Activity’s Pictures

Kuih Dadar

This is second times I conducted kuih dadar cooking class with kids.
I found kid really like grated coconut with coconut palm sugar (Gula Melaka).
Gula Melaka has it’s own distinct aroma which can’t substitute with any other kind of sugar.
Kids were also amazed with the green colour and flavour given naturally from Srewpine leaf (pandan)

smell the aroma of coconut oil
During cooking class, kids are ancouraged to smell, touch, see and taste the food ingredients.

They have enjoyed the process of making their own kuih dadar. Then they sampled their effort after making. Every kid get to experience frying the wrapping skin. In the end, they have finished up the skin (crepe) mixture paste! Averagely each kid get to repeat the skin frying process about 3-5 times. They completed the task under my guidance or accompanied by their parent.


The workshop ended with a storytelling about The Growth of a Little Coconut (小椰子成长记).
