|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)|
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.
What's your favourite malay kuih ?
