Huat Kueh (发糕)

Today is the ninth day of Chinese New Year,the hokkian normally has to pray to the god of heaven (天公),We normally buy this huat kueh for the prayer, it symbolize prosperity and growth.

I didnt quite like the colouring part of the huat kueh bought, so I found this recipe online using the natural colour from the red rice wine lees. (The remains from making red rice wine).

The house smells so good when I steamed the kueh....
