Teochew Png Kueh (Glutinous Rice and Peanut Cakes) 潮州饭桃

Ah ma will be very proud of me if she was here to eat this! I can still remember helping her wrap the pink png kueh when i was a little girl. I think i actually made this because i really miss her.. Making food that i grew up with makes me feel abit closer to home =)

It was a pity that i didn’t have any pink couloring and the traditional mould. But other then that, it tasted exactly like how i remember it to be =) The traditional ones have dried shrimp and some mince in it, but i really just like it with glutinous rice and heaps of peanuts so i omitted the rest.

Ingredients:

  1. 200g Rice Flour
  2. 80g  Tapioca Starch
  3. 390ml boiling water

  7. 1 cup chicken stock
  8. 2 cloves garlic
  9. 1 1/2 cup peanuts (boiled till semi soft)
  10. 3 tbsp oyster sauce
  11. 3 tbsp sesame oil
  12. soy sauce and pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Sift rice flour and tapioca starch into a large mixing boil. Combine with salt.
  2. Pour boiling water over oil before pouring over the flour mixture. Knead and form a smooth soft dough. Set aisde to cool.
  3. Fry garlic with sesame oil in a wok till fragrant. Add in oyster suace, chicken stock , soy sauce and pepper. Bring to boil.
