Woon Chai Koh
(Chwee Kueh, Steamed Rice Cake)

Malaysian named it "Woon Chai Koh" and Singaporean named it "Chwee Kueh" or 
modernise name will be "Steamed Rice Cake".

Aiyoh...so many names, so complicated.  Just make it and eat it lor.
It is my favourite snack for breakfast, lunch and even supper.

It is a Chinese traditional delicacy which is depleting but there are some stalls in the market
selling it at RM2.00 per piece (no joke!).

If you like soft texture, then this recipe will be yours to make.
