Lotus paste chicken floss pastries ~ 莲蓉鸡肉松酥饼


These Lotus paste chicken floss pastries are getting very popular here in Ipoh and some of them are with Pandan Lotus paste.   To me, at Rm2.50 for an approximate 2 inch diameter size pastry, is a bit on the high side, so why not try to DIY it I told myself.  Well, I did and here's what I'm going to share with you today........





I enjoyed the fruits of my labour with a nice cup of hot local coffee.
