Yesterday I was at the supermarket doing my usual fortnightly groceries shopping ~ what else can anyone be doing at a supermarket aye?? hehehez.....I chanced upon a pot steamer for only $4 and so I grabbed it. Its not the whole steamer thingy but its the one like a saucepan with holes in it. Hmmmzzz how do I explain it hehehez. Just imagine it lah huh. Oh well $4 for a 16cm steamer and it fits nicely in my 20cm saucepan I was stoked ;) Its nothing big but I was able to put a few of the red little cups to steam these little beauties in the steamer. Yeay.....I can make more kuihs now.
Saw these apams at Yat's yesterday and I thought I should give them a try. These apams were so popular at one stage that u can see them popping up at almost all the food blog except here of course hehehez. First it was only designed with polka dots. Then some creative people start to have a makeover for the apam....from ladybugs to bumble bees to mushrooms to strawberries. Now u can see them decorated like angry birds and even facebook, twitter, apple and many more logos. Really envy those people with those kinda skills.
When I whipped up the batter, I was a little skeptical at the amount of the batter produced. I thought that it was kinda a lot and will take me ages to finish making these apams. I was glad that it actually didnt take me very long to make them. After making the first few, I started to enjoy making them ahakkkss. The only downside of making them colorful is doing the dishes....haiizzzz. Oh well, I did enjoy making them and Jannah enjoyed eating them of course. She kept on saying she wanted the pink ones and the ladybugs only........hhhmmmzzzz.
