Pandan Bangkit


This Kuih Bangkit Recipe is so versatile that by just changing the fragrance or shape, it transforms into a delectable cookie.  Pandan is always the most acceptable and well known fragrance amongst us asians and the green color is auspicious for the Chinese New Year.  In cantonese, moss is called 'chang choy'  - 'chang' is 'green'  and 'choy' is 'wealth'.  Yes, wealth and prosperity are the most welcome wishes for the Chinese New Year.

I just want to thank you so much for sharing all your wonderful recipes with all of us especially those of us who are so far away from our birth place. All your recipes remind me of my mom and her cooking. Each of your recipes bring us closer to home than ever. Thank you again. :-)

You give kuih bangkit another dimension of flavor and color. I made them over the weekends and glad to report to you them gave like the kuih bangkit that I get at the market. I used your initial recipe and incorporated Fern Ng's tips and inputs from your original recipe and Voila a successful kuih bangkit. Thank you much to you and to Fern Ng for sharing recipes and techniques.

Aunty Lily, Thanks again for another great recipe. I made the Kuih Bangkit (original) last week and it was surely a success! Firm on the outside and melts once I put it in my mouth! My MIL makes great KB too, which is quite sought after which after 2 attempts I was still not able to get the same result like hers. Therefore, I'm sticking to your recipe for my next batch! My hubby and my Turkish friend loves KB! I need to make more!!

please do not bring in any live plants or meat products - pork floss included. If you are to bring chilly/curry paste - make sure that the word chicken powder is in the the ingredients listed.

I have no trouble with other dried stuffs like ikan bilis and dried shrimps.

besides bring pineapple tarts, bring them the moulds, they are not available in the stores here

Dear Lily,
Thks very much for the info. Wah! Im surprised tht US immigration is stricter than Australian - we're also not allowed to bring most meat products eg Loong Yoke but surprisingly we can bring Pork Floss / Chicken Floss into Australia! I will be flying to USA via Sg - so will buy the food stuff from Sg. Im happy to know at least I can bake some Pineapple tarts to bring to US!:)
