Kuih seri muka, sri muka or putri salat (lit.'pretty face cake') is a Banjarese and Malay two-layered dessert with steamed glutinous rice forming the bottom half and a green custard layer made with pandan juice (hence the green colour).[1] Coconut milk is a key ingredient in making this kue. It is used to impart creamy taste when cooking the glutinous rice and making the custard layer. This kue is found in Indonesia (especially in South Kalimantan),[2] Malaysia and Singapore.

In 2009, the Malaysian Department of National Heritage declared seri muka as one of 100 Malaysian heritage foods and drinks. [3][4]
