This few days i am busy preparing the ingredient to do my nyonya kuih for party. One of my friend has been asking for help to do some kuih-muih for her son's wedding this Sunday. Unfortunately i can't do it for her as i have my own pre-christmas gathering tomorrow and Sunday. Felt guilty as this is the first time she ask for help. Really felt sorry for her.
Here are for my nyonya Rempah Udang. This is one of the delicious nyonya kuih I like. My grandpa & dad love it so much too. But because i have only limited banana leaves so i just wrap it with cling wrap for the balance of my rempah udang. I am too lazy to measure the exact quantities of ingredient i have been used. So I am not able to provide u the real recipe i used. But for those who are interested, can have a try on Amy Beh's recipe which i found more or less the same.
