Steamed rice cakes with red bean



I adapted a recipe from Christine's Recipes to make these cute little steamed 'woon chai ko' with red bean.  However, I tweaked the recipe a bit by using palm sugar instead of brown sugar.










Spruce this up a bit with more syrupy kidney beans.  The touch up enhanced the look as well as the taste  ....

  4. I enjoy this kuih very much. Yours look really tempting. Btw, the white rice kuih you made, I found the name. They called it 'ham mai gou'. They used alkaline in the recipe.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
