September 28, 2014

This little steamed tapioca layer cake goes by many names and comes up in a number of different reincarnations across South East Asia. In Singapore and Malaysia it’s referred to as keuh (or kuih) lapis. In Vietnam, bánh da lợn is a version where the layers typically feature mashed mung beans. Thailand also has a […]

The last recipe left me with 4 egg yolks to find a use for, and what better than to make some kaya? If you need to ask what kaya is; you have been deprived a great treasure. Commiserations. Kaya is a South East Asian condiment that is widely referred to as a ‘coconut jam’. However if […]

I LOVE Malaysian food, but until quite recently I haven’t found very many places dishing up the food. Or maybe I just haven’t really taken all that much notice of the cuisine until the last couple of years?
