Chinese Rice Bowl Pudding


A good friend of ours came by on Saturday and I decided to make him a treat. I made this Chinese rice bowl pudding that looks like chwee kuih but actually it's a wah kuih. First time trying this and glad that it turned out well and my guest said it's very good. :)



I used Gina's Wah Kuih recipe. The differences I noticed between wah kuih and chwee kuih are for the pudding, wah kuih has wheat starch in it and thus making it more chewy/bouncy in texture as opposed to soft. Also, wah kuih has more ingredients in filling as opposed to just chai por. Before this, I have not heard of wah kuih.



As for my filling, I added dark soy sauce and sugar when stir-frying. Also drizzled some Sriracha hot sauce for extra spiciness. I didn't bother to steam the filling with the rice pudding together (lazy me as you know!), therefore it might look more like a chwee kuih.

Stay tuned for what I did with the extra rice cake. ;) Or you would love a guess?

Ching, the way it was served in the old days was to steam it in a Rice bowl. thus the name as Rice bowl pudding came about. This dish is a Hokkien recipe. In Taiwan, they served it with salted egg yolk..!

Wah...long time never eat Wah Kuih! It's even quite hard to find this back in Singapore. Almost like a "lost art"
Your "wah" (bowl) too small...I think need to eat six! Wooo...can imagine how tasty this is.

Hi vb,
Not too bad, just that I could only steam 5 rice bowls at once, so it took a while to steam everything.

Thanks steamykitchen! :)

Hi Jane ... Lucky me! First time here (thanks to Ray) and I get to slurrrp on one of my favourite kuih. I agree with steamykitchen - that pic is a fine screen saver!

So what did you do with the extra rice cake? Ketupat? I am hopeless in the kitchen. :(

Good guess but it's not Ketupat, hehehe...
