INTRODUCTION

A Teochew granny in Singapore knew that I love to taste authentic Teochew kuih and she took the pain to  arrange her relatives from Shantou, China to bring me this unsightly kuih all the way from China. By the time it reached my hand, it is really hard as stone. I re-steamed the cake and it become soft again.

This traditional  kuih is called ping pong kuih (揭阳兵乓粿)and is very common in Chaozhou (潮州), China. However, I have never seen or  eaten it in Singapore or Malaysia. What amazed me is its fillings. It has a mixed aroma of sesame seeds and peanuts. It is slightly sticky and the hard and soft texture blends very well in that piece of kuih.

I can easily replicate the kuih but as a respect to traditional kuih, I think it is a disrespect to issue a recipe based on my imaginations. i tried to search for the authentic recipe in the internet but cannot get hold of a proper recipe. Therefore, I have selve the idea of issuing of ping pong kuih. Since I like the fillings, I believed that I can design a recipe without any association with the traditional kuih..That is the reason of having this recipe.

As for the crust, I really have a soft spot  for this type of yeasted bread like type of crust. I have a recipe before and I liked it. If you are interested, you can refer to this post: Chinese Sweet Potatoes Pancake (地瓜烧饼, 番薯饼)

I remember in Yong Peng, West Malaysia, I have ever bought something like what I am going to share in this recipe with peanut fillings also. I was disappointed with that purchase as the crust is so hard, possibly because it has been there for quite a while.. I can assure readers that homemade is really very soft and fluffy and of course it will become harder in 2-3 days time.
