Know Your Kuih! Check Out Our Essential Guide To Kuih Ramadan

 

With Raya just around the corner, we can’t help but start craving for mouth-watering kuih raya! Various kuihs are offered to guests when they visit during Raya, but frankly most of it ends up in our tummies. Need a reminder on which festive staples to stack up on before the season begins? Here are 10 Essential Kuih Ramadan you need to know: 

 

1. Almond London 

 

London Almond Cookies are roasted whole almonds baked with a crunchy layer of biscuit, followed by a coat of chocolate. An all-time favourite! 

 

2. Batang Buruk 

 

Batang Buruk is named as such because it looks like an old branch, though it is actually a cylindrical snack filled with green bean powder. The flaky and powdery kuih is usually only made during Hari Raya.

 

3. Biskut Mama Carey

Mama Carey Biscuit is a buttery pastry topped with white icing, elegantly designed using chocolate or sometimes sugar beads. This scene-stealing decadent treat doesn’t often make an appearance outside of Raya - so it’s a game changer at any Raya open house for sure!

Biskut Suji, or Sugee Biscuit, is a light and crumbly pastry, with ghee as the main ingredient. Pale cream in appearance, the ghee gives it a rich and buttery flavour. Some recipes use semolina flour, which is coarser and gives the cookie an extra crunch.
