Malaysia likes it sweet - Cakes and Kuih

I think I mentioned it before somewhere that one of the highlights (of not the highlight) of Malaysia is the food. Besides the flavourful and sometimes spicy main dishes there is huge variety of cakes and desserts, commonly refered to as Kuih (or Kueh). Many of them are based on coconut and pandan.

 

 


Jars of different types of kuih are commonly found around the time of festivities like Hary Raya or Chinese New Year
