This is the Kuih Kapit, I really do not know what the Penangites called them but I called them that for that simple reason they are kapit or sandwich together..I have tasted them before ages ago when my late mum made them..but this was later introduced by a classmate of mine, Paridah Moksin..OMG it was so good then, that when we made this journey to Penang, I told my hubby we have to make time to go to Batu Feringghi and find this awesome kuih.
Let me give you a roundup of how u can actually make them at home...I am going to try make them as soon as i know where to get the kuih bakul which is actually only available during Chinese New Year..haha..
If u can see the outer layers is a slice of orange tapioca and a slice of yam. Cut about 3.5 inches each and the kuih bakul is heart of it. After which u dip the whole sandwich in a batter for frying goreng pisang (the crispy one) and fry it. U have to eat it 5 minutes after u take it out of the oil because the kuih bakul will be soften and really hot n it might burn your tongue..Happy trying..
BUTTT if u feel like u really do not want to mess about in the kitchen, take a trip to Penang, go along Batu Feringghi and u check it out yourself..I think u have to go somewhere near the Maybank along Batu Feringghi. He sells his kuihs out of a white purpose built van.
