Min Jiang Kueh (Chinese Pancake)

Tuesday, July 7, 2009




I just had Min Jiang Kueh this morning which i made myself. It is actually a kind of traditional Chinese pancake with peanut fillings in it. It is usually eaten as breakfast, but can be served as afternoon snacks too.

I saw this recipe on the net few days ago and the urge to make it had been growing in me. Finally, i made it today because sis had been pestering me to make it since i told her about it.

Ha Ha! I’m glad to have try  the recipe! 😀 It is yummy delicious. The texture is soft and chewy and the adding of white sesame added extra flavour to it. Will definitely be making it again!
