What a busy morning. My girl requested fried noodles for her lunch box.
That is why i wake up early to meet her request.
Then i made some peanut "ban jian kueh" (peanut pancake) for their breakfast.
Only managed to pan fried half then send them to school.
After coming back from church, I straight away continue making my "ban jian go" before preparing my pumpkin melon pan (polo bread) and dinner.
This ban jian kueh has been in my mind for so long.
Just wanna to have a go on this recipe adopted from kuali.
It turns out good.
I call my hubby immediately after i tested it.
I told him i can't wait to let him have a bite of the kueh.
He felt excited too as we really miss the kueh.
There are usually 2 version of it.
One with a crispy & thin skin while the other one is slightly thick and spongy.
For myself, I prefer the thick and spongy one but my girl will always ask for the crispy one when we go back to Malacca.
Try this out if you like this kueh as well.
I can say that it won't dissapointed you.
