Angku-licious

This post is about an incredibly popular Malaysian snack known as the Angku. It is a glutinous rice cake with bean or peanut filling, but it has move on to other unusual fillings like durian and coffee. Basically the skin of the Angku is made from glutinous rice flour. Dough is made from it and and the fillings is put in before it is rolled into a large ball. Then the ball is pressed into a mould to create the look, not unlike a tortoise shell. Then the whole batch is steamed to create the colorful Angku. With regards to the skin, the chewier the better. Upon biting into the Angku, the skin should give way and not stick to your teeth. The smooth the fillings, the better the Angku as well. Anyway, this lovely local dessert as with all desserts, are sweet foods eaten purely for pleasure. The Angku featured below in this post are techni-colored and consist of the original (Mung Bean), Red Bean, Pandan, Coconut, and Peanut flavours.

The lyrics of this post have been adapted from that ever so popular track by Fergie, Fergalicious – the Dutchess Album, for your reading pleasure!

Listen up ya’ll, Cuz this is it
The dough that I’m bangin’ is de-li-cious

[Verse 1]
Angku-licious definition make them lil boys & gals go loco
They want my treasure so they get their pleasures from my mung beans
You can squeeze me, you can eat me
I’m very easy, I ain’t meaty
I got reasons why I’m chewy
Trays of me just come and go like biscuits

[Hook 1]
Angku-licious (So delicious)
But I ain’t fergalicious
And if you was suspicious
All that filling is sumptuous
I also got peanuts (mmmwwahhh)
That puts them boys & gals on shiok shiok
And they be lining down the alley just to watch what I got (four, tres, two, uno)

I be up in the kitchen just working on my tradition
He’s my witness (oooh wee)

And they be lining down the jalan just to watch what I got (four, tres, two, uno)

[Chorus]
So delicious (It’s hot, hot)
So delicious (I put them boys & gals on shiok shiok)
So delicious (they wanna slice of what I got)

Baby, baby, baby
