Pandan Hee Pan 香兰喜粄

This is another post to support Joceline's September Little Thumb Up. Since I always wanna make hee pan again after I tried the pumpkin hee pan, dear daughter and mil quite like it so I decided to make pandan flavor this time.

Recipe adapted from 小雨伞的天空 

Ingredients : (50g for 11 pieces, 30g for 17 pieces)
150g plain flour, sifted
130g glutinous rice flour, sifted
70g castor sugar
1/2tsp + 1/4tsp instant yeast
5-6 pandan leaves (I used 8)
200ml water
15g canola oil
Banana leaves or parchment paper or cupcake case
Method : 
1. Wash the pandan leaves, cut in pieces and blend with 200ml water, squeeze out 200g of pandan juice.
2. Wash and clean the banana leaves, steam to soften and cut into square.
3. Mix plain flour, glutinous rice flour, sugar, yeast and pour in the pandan juice slowly and knead till dough is smooth. (I left over about 20-30g liquid, next time will try use all)
4. Add in oil bit by bit, mix well with the dough. If dough is too sticky, use the plastic spatula to scrape.
5. Divide dough into 50g portions (do not need to proof), brush some oil on palm and roll into balls. (I divided into 30g portion)
6. Place the ball onto the greased banana leaves or parchment paper and flatten it using palm.
7. Let the shaped hee pan proof for 25-30 mins.
8. Use finger to press the hee pan, fermented hee pan will be spongy, once ready can start to boil water in the steamer.
9. Once water is boiled, steam the hee pan for 12 mins at medium low heat. Turn off the fire immediately. 
10. Do not remove the hee pan from the steamer.
11. Open the steamer lid a bit for 5 mins, then remove the lid carefully not to let water drip on the hee pan.
12. Remove the hee pan and cool on the rack.

May be I didn't put enough liquid, the hee pan seem doesn't rise well so the texture is not spongy only chewy. However the pandan taste is quite evident and sweetness just nice, definitely gonna try make again.
