Everyone is familiar with all the Raya treats that make their signature comeback around this time, every year. Kuihs are an amazing part of our tradition here in Asia and it’s become an essential part of celebrating almost any occasion!

Kuihs definitely go hand in hand when visiting your relatives during the festive season. They’re the perfect conversation starters, especially because when they are displayed for the guests to nibble on before the main meal or if you have a sweet snacking tooth.

As a treat for all of you, our very own Community Manager here at Zahara, Juliana, has agreed to share her secret recipe that will put a twist on your traditional Pineapple Tarts, or better known as Kuih Tat. She will be replacing the filling of pineapple with a sweeter (not so healthy, but then again are kuih even healthy, to begin with?)Nutellafilling!

I must admit, this is a definite guilty pleasure snack of mine because of the sheer numbers of Kuih Tat I can consume alone. Trying Juliana’s Nutella Kuih Tats are so good, they will actually become an addiction.

Snatch her recipe below!


  • 400g of Plain Flour
  • 250g of Salted Butter
  • 50g of Caster Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Your desired amount of Nutella



  • Make sure you have all your ingredients together. Check that your butter has softened to room temperature before you begin.
  • Pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Line your baking tray with baking paper or ensure to coat them with butter so that your Kuih doesn’t stick to the bottom.

Mixing time!

  • Add butter to a mixing bowl and slowly add the caster sugar while whisking. Gradually add your sugar to keep the mixture consistent. Keep an eye on it! Mix until the butter turns a pale yellow.


  • Once your mixture is an even pale yellow, crack in a full egg and ONE yolk. Whisk it until the mixture has combined.


  • Your mixture should look like this:


  • Next, mix in the flour into 3 batches. Your mixture now should form a solid dough.


  • Now it’s the fun part! Roll out your dough to a thickness of half an inch or a little over a centimeter and use your mold to cut out the base of the Kuih.


  • Once you’ve gone through the entire dough, it’s time to bake! Place your tray in the oven and let it bake for 15 minutes at 160 degrees Celcius.


  • After baking, leave the base to chill for 15 mins before you start piping. Grab a piping bag (you can use a ziplock bag and snip a corner) and fill it with Nutella. Start piping!


  • Bake the tarts with the Nutella filling again for another 10 minutes at 160 degrees Celcius to ensure the Nutella sets.

Viola! Allow some time for your Nutella Kuih to cool down so to let the dough properly set. Then, you may begin your feasting! We hope you loved that breakdown into making Kiuh tats with a twist. Let us know if you want to have more blogs like this over Ramadan. We definitely enjoyed making it (eating it)!

Till next time!
