At first browse through this recipe, I found it quite complicated. But once i have organised the required ingredients orderly, it took me less than half an hour to make this beautiful kuih (excluding the steaming time).
I brought some for my " taiji rouli qiu"（太极柔力球）members. I got good feed back from them.
I like the texture of the kuih. And it is not very sweet just nice for my taste bud. It is an ideal snack for afternoon tea.
