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~

    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.

    J2Kfm:
    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.
