Malay kuih

Pink sago coated with coconuts
I had the first taste of this pink sago kuih when I was still working in KL. Never knew what they were at first, I was tempted to buy because the color looks like my favourite malay syrup drinks. I love that air sirap a lot and still remember they were only selling at RM0.10/ glass in my school canteen. Wonder how much they have increased the price now ? 

Ok, back to the kuih. Once I've tasted this pink kuih, I'd listed it as one of my favourite kuih ! Those days, I bought them quite often from the roadside malay stall near to the LRT stations. Last week, we visited the Radmahdan stalls and I bought some home. It was so delicious. The fragrance rosy smell, not too sweet nor too bland and very well coated with a tad salty sheared coconut flesh.  I had 4 in one shot and that spoiled my dinner for that night ^_^

Putu Piring (rice flour with gula melaka)
This is also another of my favourite. I'm not sure of the correct name (Is it Putu piring? ). I used to bug mum to buy this for me whenever we visited the pasar malam. And I still love this kuih up till now ! The gula melaka stuffed inside the rice flour are so addictive.

Other type of malay kuih that I love will be ondek-ondek. The green color mini balls stuffed with gula melaka and coated with shredded coconut flesh are something I love since I was a child. Some made the balls bigger in size but funny, they don't taste the same. I still prefer the cute mini balls.
