Pulut Serikaya

I've been searching for this recipe for quite sometime. And most of the time, I found the same recipe as from the source below. My comment - got the wanted taste and texture, but not the look. The bottom part is to thick while the topping is to thin. I will definately use this recipe again with some modification -might reduce the glutinous rice to 1 cup and use smaller mould (6X6). I will get it equally then.
