Gingko Nuts with Dates

It’s now the 7th month of the lunar calendar, which is known as the ghost month. So the whole family went to the temple to pay respect to my grandparents and father. Quite a few dishes of their favourite food were brought along including this dessert, gingko nuts with dates.

Teochew Png Kueh

This was brought to the temple too. Pink color triangle shaped munchie is commonly known as png kueh, meaning rice cake. It’s actually a very popular Teochew snack with the exterior make from rice flour and filled with steamed glutinous rice. The filling also includes small dried prawn, peanut and mushroom. This is available in both steamed or pan-fried and can be served with chilli paste and sweet sauce.
