food colouring..red, green..(depends on you, I used pandan emulco, strawberry emulco, coffee emulco)
written in my recipe notebook..too
whisking egg, ovalette, sugar , rose essence until fluffy
then, add the plain flour into the mixture.
mixed them well.
What I did ...
1. Whisking egg white and ovalette first until stiff and dry.
2.In another bowl, whisk yolks, caster sugar till the mixture is very pale.
3. Then, combine the mixture from 1 and 2..
4. Slowly fold the sifted plain flour into the mixture 3.
5. Divide the mixture into 3 bowls. One colour for one bowl.
6. Pour the mixture one by one into a grease prepared tin.. (depends on how you like it).
7. Cook in a steam pan covered, with a cloth till cooked..
