*Boil together until sugar dissolves, cool completely before using.
-600-700g koh fun
-6 cups syrup (always measure syrup by volume never by weight)
-2 tsp cafe mali flavor or whatever flavor you want
-1 tbs lime juice
-2 tsp oil or shortening
-100g koh fun for dusting (approx.)
*In a bowl, stir together syrup, lime juice, extract, and oil. Add koh fun and mix well (will be very "syrupy" at this stage, the flour will "expand" as it soaks up the syrup). Let mixture rest for 1/2 hour or until thicken. Grease hands with oil and knead dough until smooth. Divide dough into the appropriate size (depends on mould). Take a portion of dough, flatten it and wrap filling in the center. Dust with koh fun and mould.
Refer to filling for Bánh Bía.
Dough is should be 2/3 the weight of the total pastry and filling should be 1/3 of the total weight. For example if the mould size you have is 150g (weight of pastry the mould will produce), then the dough should be 100g and filling is 50g.
