Vegetarian Png Kuehs

The Teochew Png Kuehs (潮州饭馃 or Kueh Tor) are peach-shaped glutinous rice kuehs. These kuehs are made from glutinous rice and other ingredients (dried shrimps, peanut, fried shallots, mushrooms) which are wrapped in a rice flour dough and then pressed against a peach-shaped mould.

A vegetarian stall located at Block 494 Jurong West Street 41 sell vegetarian version of Png Kuehs which exclude dried shrimps and fried shallots in their ingredients. Besides vegetarian Png Kuehs, the stall also sell yummy peach-shaped yam kuehs which have yam and mushrooms as their main ingredients.

There are people who like to eat fried Png Kuehs but i still prefer the originals. What about you?

Fried ones - only when my taste buds ask for it once in a blue moon. If not, I also prefer original ones.
