About Wa Ko Kueh.
The Wa Ko Kueh was actually called Ko Kueh, and originated from the province of Fujian, China. It is actually sometimes found in the shape of a square. It was a popular delicacy among households, made during festive seasons often for ancestral worship.
The Ko Kueh was later renamed. It was steamed in small porcelain bowls with black sugar. The Chinese word for bowls is “Wan”, which is why the Ko Kueh is named “Wa Ko Kueh” today.
Today, apart from being used for Chinese festivals, Wa Ko Kueh also become a popular snack for family gatherings and snacks.
WAY OF EATING
REHEAT TO ADD FRAGRANCE
Steam the Wa Ko Kuehs in a pot of hot water. Toss in some pandan leaves into the pot for added fragrance.
DIP WITH CONDIMENTS
You can dip the Wa Ko Kuehs in ready-made flavoured syrup or another traditional way of eating the Wa Ko Kuehs is to dip them in red sugar or grated white coconut. Alternatively, you can dip your freshly made Wa Ko Kuehs with jam, butter, nutella or fresh cream.
SPRINKLE WITH TOPPINGS
Spread a layer of mayonnaise on top of your Wa Ko Kuehs and add a dash of chocolate chips or pork floss for a savory treat.
