and we all deserve something sweet and sticky..  

P8314107

presenting the Kuih Koci!

Kuih Koci santan, is a steamed glutinous rice flour dessert, with a grated coconut and gula melaka(brown sugar) filling, slathered in a thick white salty santan, wrapped in a banana leaf.. the shape resembles a rectagular pillow. It is a super delicious and famous Nyonya dessert (thanks ‘M’ for buying these – one of the best we have eaten in ages!) Usually, the color of Kuih Koci santan is white and green, has a lovely chewy texture, and if you will excuse me.. I’m going to have my tea-time snack.. now.
