Teatime snacks

Each time we had our gathering at my brother's house, my second sister would buy lots of snacks and feed us. OMG, I think I put on some weight

The above photo are min jian kueh or our local pancake. Some comes with crushed peanuts and sugar.

And some comes with red bean paste. Best eaten when they are hot.

The above are chwee kuey from the famous Tiong Bahru Hawker Centre. They are also known as our local steamed rice cakes. You can read more about chwee kuey from here.

They are to be eated with chilli and of course the chai poh (preserved raddish). Eaten on its own is not as nice as eaten with chai poh. Mostly eaten for breakfast or as snacks.
