    dale!'s Note:

    A popular dessert in Malaysia where I first came across it. It may sound a little strange but tastes really good. A great dessert for a Malaysian or Asian themed dinner party. I got this recipe from a cooking magazine I bought in....Malaysia!!

      This is a favorite from when I used to live in Singapore. Just like I remember it. I found the ingredients easily at a local chinese grocery. Easy to make, wonderful flavor, goes well with curry dishes.
