Happy Flour, already quite sometime I didn't Ban Chien Kuih. Like this more than the sweet kuih.

I've never tried this before - it looks so delicious! I'd love it if you'd drop by and share this with BYOB - Bake Your Own Bread this month (!

I bought the pan sometime back but still got to get my drive back into the kitchen. Seeing this, I am once again motivated. Wait till I heal fully, I will try it out. Yum
