Giam Chye Kueh



My chef has prepared some Giam Chye Kueh (Preserved Vegetables Kueh, Hum Choi Ban, or 咸菜) yesterday using chopped Giam Chye and minced pork as the main ingredients. Like the case of the Hakka Peanut Kueh, it is also uncommon too see the Giam Chye Kueh at food stalls.




Hakka 101
Hum2: Salty; 咸
Choi4: Vegetables; 菜
Ban3: Kueh; 粄
