Teochew Peach Shaped Kuih


Pastry wrapper
250g rice flour
85g glutinous rice flour
40g castor sugar
35g cooking oil
160-170ml water
A little pink colouring

2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp chopped dried radish (choy poe)
4 dried Chinese mushrooms, soaked and diced
150g cooked glutinous rice
85g chopped toasted peanuts

½ tsp salt
¾ tsp sugar
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp sesame oil


COMBINE both flours, sugar and oil in a mixing bowl. Pour in water gradually to mix and add colouring. Knead well to form a soft dough.

Divide the dough into equal portions. Wrap each portion with some filling (recipe follows) and shape into a ball. Place into a wooden or plastic peach shaped mould. Press in slightly and knock out the kuih.

Place them on greased banana leaves and steam over high heat for 7-8 minutes or until cooked through. Remove and immediately brush with a little cooking oil.

For the filling: Heat oil in a saucepan and fry dried radish until fragrant. Add mushrooms and cooked glutinous rice to mix. Add seasoning and stir-fry until well combined. Stir in peanuts to mix. Dish out and leave to cool.
