The one nonya kueh I don't buy because the ones sold outside always disappoint is kueh kosui. Or kuih kosui. It's made with Gula Melaka, Pandan leaves, tapioca flour, and grated coconut.
Everytime i bought it and bit into it, I was sorely disappointed . It was hard compared to the soft yummy ones my mom used to make.
Growing up in my parents home, kuih kosui was a favourite mom would make. She's steam it, cut it up, roll it in grated coconut with a pinch of salt. We'd eat it right away, while still warm. That was heavenly. So soft, just the right texture and sweetness. How I miss mom's cooking.
I do buy nonya kuehs now and then, like ondeh ondeh.
I love how the sweet liquid gula melaka oozes out with every bite. The ones from bengawan solo are good.
Though I'm a nonya by birth, I hardly make kueh since I married out of the nonya clan. I buy my kuih instead :p
But I can make a mean chocolate truffle ;)
