Put Chai Ko

Put Chai Ko (Cantonese 缽仔糕) which means small bowl cake is a rice pudding steamed in a small bowl and it takes the shape of the bowl after it is removed from the bowl. I mentioned this in one of my post a few days ago and it brought me back to the days when I was a little girl and used to eat this Put Chai Ko.

So I went looking for them at the neighbourhood wet market and found them so I bought some to share with my family.

Brown sugar Put Chai Ko served with coconut flakes - MYR1 only. That is a tablespoon beside it to show that the Put Chai Ko is quite big unlike those small ones sold elsewhere.

Should be pandan Put Chai Ko served with coconut flakes - MYR1 also. This is new as I did not eat this type when I was young. I still prefer the brown sugar Put Chai Ko to this one.

This Put Chai Ko is a plain rice pudding so it is eaten as a savoury pudding with preserved vege topping and chili sauce and tim cheong (sweet brown sauce) like those for Chee Cheong Fun. The sauce are in the bags in the photo. MYR1.50 although it is the same size as those sweet ones but more expensive due to the toppings and sauces provided.

    1. I have eaten very tasty chwee kueh in SG, it is smaller but with a very fragrant rice taste. I like it a lot.

  2. I like these Put Chai Ko. The coconut flakes with a little bit of salt go well with the kueh. And savoury kueh is my favourite.

    1. I have come across salt in coconut flakes but this one I don't think they put salt.

    1. You can easily make this. Taste like rice since it is made from rice powder.

    1. I think should be as long as they are sweet and made from rice flour and steamed.

  11. I am not familiar with this kueh except for the last one. Looks like chwee kueh. But I think I will like all 3.

    1. All made from rice flour and steamed so should all taste quite the same except for being sweet or savoury.
