Hi Lucy
Thanks for sharing this recipe.
May I know where can I get the kat peng....phoon huat or ntuc?
And for the mui choy ...to get the salted or sweet one?
I guess this recipe gives a salty and sweet taste?

Hi Lucy,

Just want to know whether you use oil to pan fry the mui choy or dry fry?



Aunty Yochana said...


Pan fry...not oil at all.

Hi aunty,
Yesterday i managed to make this mooncake becoz my hubby was longing for it. My mom says it's delicious better than the traditional one as it's not sweet.
