Qasidah is a dough-like sweet made from flour, coconut milk, eggs and sugar with pandan leaves for its aroma and taste. A traditionalist would insist the Qasidah should be slowly cooked in a brass pot for the best taste and texture. When the mixture solidifies into a dough, it is taken off the heat and when cooled, it is then filled in flower like moulds. Before serving, caramelized fired shallots are sprinkled on top for that extra sweetness.
