Seri Muka or Putri Salat

Seri Muka (also Kuih Seri Muka or Sri Muka (Malay: Pretty face) or Kuih Putri Salat ) is a two-layered dessert with steamed glutinous rice forming the bottom half and a green custard layer made with pandan juice (hence the green colour).[1] Coconut milk is a key ingredient in making this kuih. It is used to impart creamy taste when cooking the glutinous rice and making the custard layer.

In 2009 the Malaysian Department of National Heritage declared Seri Muka one of 100 Malaysian heritage foods and drinks. [2] [3]

It can also be found in the Indonesian province of South Kalimantan[4]. In Singapore it is known as Kuih Putri Salat.
