Crispy savoury shells packed with sweet, spicy and juicy fillings – “Just one bite” never seems to work on these delectable little treats.
With the ingenious invention of Kueh Pie Tee moulds, you can now easily replicate the iconic tiny pleated shells from scratch! Simply heat the mould in oil and dip into the batter. For that extra thin crisp skin, make sure to let the extra batter drip off before sinking the mould back into the oil. Gently shake the shell off and let it swim in hot oil, only a few seconds needed, for the translucent yellow shells to achieve its maximum crispiness.  
Make your Kueh Pie Tee shells ahead of time and help them stay crispy and delicious in airtight containers. Pair this satisfying crunch with the refreshing mix of juicy chopped vegetables and dried prawns. And preparing the fillings only requires a few minutes of frying in one wok – how simple is that!
There are countless ways to enjoy these tiny treats. We kept our adaptation of this popular Peranakan snack simple yet elegant by topping it shredded eggs, blanch prawns and the finishing touch of a dollop of chilli sauce. So simple to make and delectably fun to eat – What are you waiting for?! Time to gather everyone for a Kueh Pie Tee party!
