Kuih Bengka Beras

This kuih is called 'Fei Chee Yau Koh' in cantonese and translated is 'lard' as the appearance resembles it. This kuih should be bouncy and flexible when a piece is held, therefore to achieve this, this kuih should be baked in 8 inch cake tin with a height of 2 1/2 inch. Slice thinly for serving.

green pea flour is more stable than tapioca flour. perhaps you could but the texture will not be the same.

Hi Lily
so glad I found your blog. Have been searching for this 'fatty cake' for a long time.
Is there another way of cooking the batter instead of microwave?

great recipes.
