Kuih Jonkong


Kuih Jongkong is delicious but those authentic ones wrapped in banana leaves ain’t easy to find. I have been craving for this but I was lazy to make some just to satisfy my cravings :p
A few days back, mom’s good friend came over to Iftar. While talking to her on the phone a day before the meet up, she was saying that she bought some kuih jongkong which tasted really off and its so difficult to find good kuih jongkong nowadays. So I decided to make some for her.

She was full of praises for the kuih and she said that I was very good with the banana leaves as I could fold it nicely. She obviously didn’t know that I struggled while wrapping this!  She added that, it takes some skills to wrap with just 1 sheet of leaf coz most people would use 2. Ah…the nice things that people say when you give them good food! 😉
