A BAG & A DISH
Ankith & Ang Ku Kueh

Ang Ku Kueh directly translates to “red tortoise cake” in Hokkien.
As their name suggests, they are traditionally red in colour as the Chinese consider red to be an auspicious colour. However, the Ang Ku Kuehs today come in many different colours.
They are still in the same shape of a tortoise as the Chinese consider tortoises to be auspicious animals that symbolise good fortune and longevity.
On most Ang Ku Kuehs, you will most likely see the Chinese character “寿”(shòu) which means longevity.
Even though Ang Ku Kuehs originated from China, the Ang Ku Kuehs we have in Singapore have skins with a chewier texture as they are made using the Nyonya style and with glutinous rice flour.
They are steamed and served on a small piece of banana leaf.
They are most often filled with ground roasted peanuts and bean pastes. But, today you can find Ang Ku Kuehs with fillings such as coffee, durian, hazelnut, pistachio and even cookie butter! The latter 3 are sold by @theakkhut, a SG store. The beautiful Ang Ku Kuehs (Green Bean, Red Bean, Yam, Pistachio, Hazelnut, Peanut) featured in this post were purchased with our own money from @theakkhut and we must add that they were very delicious! 😋
