The last time I made this Glutinous Rice dish was Nov 2013 before I started the Recipes we Cherish blog sites! This is one of our cherished recipes that highly deserves a feature on the blog. We usually made it as a filling for Png Kueh, I have made it as a ‘stuffing’ to go with five-spice turkey. It is also superlicious on its own!
