Chen Xiuhuan Made Rainbow Ang Ku Kueh At Ji Xiang Confectionery, Here’s The Recipe
A simplified recipe of the colourful kueh sold at the popular shop.
Have you ever seen something that looked so pretty you wanted to eat it immediately? That was how Chen Xiuhuan felt when she first laid eyes on some rainbow-hued ang ku kueh online. And when she learned that the popular Ji Xiang Confectionery at Everton Park, which specialises in ang ku kueh, sells them, she immediately got in touch with the boss and asked if he could teach her how to make it. Surprisingly, he agreed.
Ang ku kueh, loosely translated from Hokkien as “red tortoise cake”, is an oval-shaped treat made with glutinous rice flour skin wrapped around a sweet filling, often mung bean or peanut. The traditional snack, which has its origins in the Chinese province of Fujian, resembles a tortoise shell and is usually red in colour, hence its name.
