We found this bit fascinating - Kueh Talam Sago Pandan by Cheffery's Kitchen in Adelaide and here's what he has to say indeed a "lost kuih" :-
"Kuih Sago Talam, my mum's favourite kuih. Pandan flavoured sago with coconut
Gluten free and vegan, steam not bake.
It is also named "lost kuih" as my mum said you can never find it in the market anymore!"
