Auntie Yochana,
If I make the Kuih can I put in the fridge for next day?
Please advice
Thanks a lot

hi lilian

nonya kueh is best eaten on the same day. You can put in the fridge for next day. I don't see why you can't. The only fear tho..that the top might crack a little because of the coldness.

Thaw before consuming.

Hi Auntie,

I tried your recipe but the top layer is very soft even though I steamed it longer. Can you check if the tapioca flour portion is correct since the top portion has more? Thank you.

PS: I am an avid fan of your blog and I am amazed at the things you do.

Hi Aunty Yochana

I tried out the kueh yesterday and it was wonderful. I've posted this in my blog.

Thank you for posting this recipe.

Hi Olivia,

Thumbs up...your kuih looks better than mine cos your top layer is thicker.

I made mine and found it too thin so I altered the recipe to another half more , so much so that I made a mistake while posting it initially. I corrected it while typing. You used the corrected one after one of the lady told me about it.

I'm so happy that you kuih looks so beautiful.
