Chwee Kueh

One of our local breakfast favourites, this is something that every Singaporean loves with a passion!
Chwee Kueh literally means water cake. It is a type of steamed rice cake topped with preserved radish (chye por). The kueh itself itself tastes light and soft with the fragrance of steamed rice, chye por gives it the savoury finish. One thing to take note is that the chye poh needs to be washed 2-3 times so that it’s not too salty. Serve it on it’s own or with your favourite chilli sauce!
