Kueh Dadar with Panasonic MX-V310 Blender
Making Kueh can be very easy with the right equipment. At first, I was intimidated by Kueh Dadar. The pandan skin can be a challenge to make as you need to find a way to extract the fragrant of the pandan from its leaves while making sure that the batter is smooth and silky. With the Panasonic MX-V310 Blender, I could able to make Kueh Dadar quickly thanks to the way the unique blades are designed to blend ingredients efficiently. It has upper blades and lower blades to give you the ultimate blending performance!
The blender has 6 auto menus to choose from with just 3 settings to select. It even has a cleaning mode to help you to clean the interior of the jug easily.
Retailing in-store for only S$109, the Panasonic blender is versatile to make any of your favourite recipes! I have been using it to make my morning smoothie everyday, while my mum uses it to make her homemade curry paste for dinner using the glass mill attachment.
While like usual, I like my recipes to be fuss-free and simple. So to make the batter, simply just blend all of the crepe ingredients including the pandan leaves together in the blender until smooth. Your crepe batter is done!
The crepe is filled with grated coconut that has been cooked with Gula Melaka to give that wonderful delicious sweet caramelized flavor that Kueh Dadar is known for. To make the fling, I actually used desiccated coconut instead of fresh coconut flakes. It is easier as I can store it in my pantry and use whenever I need. But, to make it usable for this recipe, you will need to steam the desiccated coconut with some water to soften it up first. Thankfully, I have my trusty Panasonic Cubie Oven which, could quickly steam it up, making it soft and fluffy in no time.
