Teochew Png Kueh
One might think that sealed in this bright pink chewy flour skin is a sweet treat. But under that sweet delicate looking exterior is a whole new world of flavourful glutinous rice filling, bringing with it a savoury twist.
To make Png Kueh, you would need a special wooden mould in a shape of a peach with a pointed edge. Its unmistakable peach shape comes about from the Chinese symbol of longevity, hence the custom for Chinese to use these as offerings during religious ceremonies. Pink for the gods in heaven and white for the gods in hell.
Not only does the filing play a big part in the taste, the skin also makes or breaks a good Png Kueh. If you want your Png Kueh skin thin, sticky and tender, make sure to watch the ratio of flour and water. Too much flour makes the skin tough while too much water makes it fall apart. But fret not, follow our recipe and you have no worries getting that soft bouncy texture.
Add a boost to that savoury flavour and drizzle on sweet soy sauce. This delicate sweet pink Teochew traditional snack, makes your day even just by looking – the perfect comfort food enjoyed by all generations at any time of the day.
