Rice flour and chopped turnip.

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

I have not had these in a long time. What? Look like slugs?


And it is the first time in my life that I am having them without any sweet sauce or chilli sauce!

This is definitely food!

Actually, they are already quite tasty without any sauce. The filling on the inside is peppery, slightly sweet and slightly salty. Goes well with the bland wrap.

I decided to be brave and chose a healthier option by not adding any sauce. Thankfully, they still taste good without sauce. In fact, I think I like them without sauce. Older people like food to be more bland, I suppose. -.-"

In case you are not a local and do not know what these are, they are Soon Kueh, 笋粿, a local steamed dumpling of rice flour skin and chopped turnip filling. A delicacy! Kidding!

OK, time for some hot green tea. Perfect!

Soon Kuey... Nice!!! I havent eat them for quite some time too. And normally, I eat them with sweet sauce. But not with fried onion. And specific shop you like to buy from?

Hi Benson,

I buy from a stall in the canteen. I am not particular but the Tiong Bahru ones are better. Used to eat quite often when I was staying in Tiong Bahru. :D

AK71 said...

Hi yeh,

Yup, I usually eat with chili sauce and sweet sauce too but I am trying to be healthier in my diet. ;p

Kuchai is a kind of leek, ranked-scented, green, growing from 20 to 40 centimeters high. The bulbs are small, white and clustered. The leaves are green, grasslike, very narrowly linear, flattish, 15 to 30 centimeters long, and 3 to 6 millimeters wide. Source: Kuchai: Uses and benefits.
