Assemble layers and steam kueh salat

Step 6 – Assemble layers and steam kueh salat

– Pour kaya custard over glutinous rice and spread evenly. Steam over low heat for 30 to 40 minutes. (To test if the kueh salat is cooked through, place a skewer through the middle and remove. If the skewer comes out clean, it is thoroughly cooked through. If the skewer picks up some kaya custard, let it steam for another 5 to 10 minutes.)
– Allow kueh salat to cool completely for 20 to 25 minutes before cutting with an oiled knife. (The oil on the knife ensures that rice does not stick to the blade, resulting in clean cuts.)

Final Step: Cut, plate and serve!
Cut into rectangular bite-sized pieces and serve.
