U-CHANG KUEH @ CENTRAL MARKET SIBU


This is the poorer sibling of Chwee Kueh. The recipe is the same as Chwee Kueh except it's garnished with fried shallots (U-Chang) instead of chai-poh. This costs 50 sen per bowl.

The u-chang is sprinkled on top before it's being eaten. One uses a folk to score around the parameter of the inside bowl, making a circle around the kueh; then do a tic-tac-toe squares on the kueh. Lastly pour sugary soy sauce and sugary chili sauce (both are quite watery and diluted version of the real thing). Then dig in.

I remember in the old days, we use bamboo sticks (sharpened at one end) as eating utensil. And the U-Chang Kueh was 5 sen per bowl.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
