Yong Xiang Carrot Cake : Crispy Pan-fried Soon Kueh and Png Kueh

If you had plenty of carrot cake before, how about having png kueh (rice cake) or soon kueh (turnip cake) pan-fried into carrot cake style?

Pan-fried png kueh are usually done at home where the kuehs are seared to a nice caramelized brown tone, imbuing the chewy glutinous skin an extra crispness. Hence, it quite an eye-opener to discover this delicacy  in Bendemeer Hawker Center. 

Our choice of pan-fried Png Kueh and Soon kueh looked like a mess but it was tasty even without the black sauce. The uncle used a lot of oil to fry and thus be prepared to handle some greasiness here. However, the frying process did give a slippery feel the soon kueh which glides smoothly across the tongue. 


Be it this unique fried kueh or the white carrot cake, it was very generous with the eggs and perhaps a little more chye por would make this even more fragrant.
