Penang Mobile Mung Bean Jelly

Posted by Cokeworld Citizen | 5:18 AM | , | 9 comments »

In the age of mobility, everything has to be on the go and this includes our food. Mung Bean jelly (Lek Dau Kuih) has been selling in such a way for as long as I could remember.

In a hot day like this, a cooling jelly would be a nice treat. Too bad the uncle ran out of the santan types. Pinkish jellies are Ribena flavoured while the white translucent ones are original flavours.

RM 1 for 3 piece and they usually move around an area every day.

However, the jelly wasn't as good as I thought. Too sweet and the texture is bad. Unlike the ones I used to have when I was small. QQ smooth mung bean jellies are my all time childhood favourite when I have not develop interest in ais kacang and cendol. Hahaha.

Happy chilling~

    hahaha. Weather is crazy recently. I always thought end of the year isn't suppose to be this hot.

    Precious Pea:
    Hm i also dunno wats the correct english name but its made of mung bean flour and in hokkien its called lek dau kuih.

    Mung bean itself doesn't have much flavour or flavourless. It's 3 thin slices compared to wat I had a few years back, chunks.
