Kochi Nyonya

MYR1.20 per piece at Nyonya Colors

I did not expect it to be blue at the bottom. Most probably the blue colour comes from blue pea flowers (bunga telang).

Very soft and sticky with coconut flakes as fillings. I prefer Kochi Santan but this is very nice too, sweet but not overly sweet unless you eat more than 1 at one sitting.

    1. To look attractive. The blue colour comes from bunga telang most probably.

    1. But the queue moves very fast and people also leave very fast after eating.

  8. Apparently, the blue colour is something that distinguishes nyonya kuih. Same like the nyonya chang (dumpling) also white and blue glutinous rice. My mom said different colour has different meaning, sometimes there would be green or yellow colour kuih, but I don't remember what colour is what meaning..

    1. That's interesting. Is your mother a nyonya descendant like Merryn?

    1. I ate half only so did not find it overly sweet. I guess if you eat more than one, then maybe the sweetness will get to you.

  12. Kuih koci is one of my favourite. This reminds me of a Malay pantun - "Ada satu kuih koci, buat dia tiga segi. Luar tepung dalam inti. Dimakan orang tak ada gigi."

    1. Oh, I thought only fat koh or those red flat kuihs are used for prayers.

  14. I've seen this before in Malay kueh stalls too, guess they used the recipe from the Nyonyas. I like the stuff inside - very sweet! :)
