Kuih Pulut Inti - the New must-try Flavour in "Pulut Inti Mooncake" for the Mooncake Festival

What is Pulut Inti?

Pulut Inti is a popular sweet Nyonya Kuih. It is made of steamed glutinous rice with coconut milk and eaten with coconut filling. “Pulut” means glutinous rice and “Inti” means filling in Malay. To understand what is "Kueh or Kue or Kuih" - it is covered in one of one our heritage recipe called, Pulut Tai Tai.

This year's Mooncake festival falls on the 17th September 2024, and our good friend and baker Alice Foo, has generously shared her Pulut Inti Mooncake recipe with us here below, using one of our Mooncake moulds.

Traditional Kuih Pulut Inti

Traditional Pulut Tai Tai

Kuih Pulut Inti - sticky and moist glutinous rice, topped with sweet aromatic coconut filling (inti) and wrapped in banana leaves is a classic Nyonya kuih enjoyed by many in Malaysia, Singapore and perhaps Indonesia.

This Pulut Inti mooncake option is great as banana leaves are not easily available locally, especially in winter. And Alice put a twist by adding a small banana leaf at the bottom of the mooncake.

Tea pairing with Mooncakes

The light, airiness of tea, coupled with its calm aroma is a wise choice for anyone indulging in mooncakes. The combinations are endless, but here are some tea pairings with mooncakes that bring out the best of both worlds. We recommend the following tea :-

(1) Oolong tea - Blue Goddess with Red bean mooncakes.

(2) Black tea with lotus mooncake and black tea is found in our Blue Myrtle tea.

(3) Butterfly Pea tea to pair with very sweet mooncake is good combo as Blue Tea may help to balance the "sugar" in mooncakes.

(4) Peppermint with Snowkin mooncake and peppermint is found in our Goodnight Sweet Dreams Blue Tea.

(5) Or try our 2 NEW Winter warming tea ie “Turmeric + Cinnamon Tea”, available in a pack containing 20 teabags This delightful & nutritious tea includes ginger and lemon for added flavour. Nootropics tea with "Lion's Mane Mushroom with Gingko Biloba + Gotu Kola" for Focus & Memory, comes in 15 teabags.
