Irresistable Apoms

My favourite food - This is a tag from King’s Wife. The barn charn kueh she put up in her blog had me lau nuar on my keyboard. :P I like my barn charn kueh with brown sugar and lots of peanuts and drizzled with butter. **yummmiesss**

Anyone for apoms here? I like apoms...ahh...my comfort food.....so,I’ll put up 2 different types here.



Apom Manis – Made from a batter of rice flour, coconut milk, eggs and sugar. I like the ones with the soft and fluffy centre. Don’t quite take to the paper-thin ones…one bite and half of the apom breaks and falls onto the ground.


Apom Balik – Ahhh….This one lar, we call it apom balik in Penang. The original recipe of rice flour, fresh grated coconut, coconut milk and sugar comes with thin slices of ripe bananas…pisang raja is the best. Another variation comes with cream corn. Gimme the ones with bananas, anytime. Dr Chen, how many should we order?

## both pics nicked from a good friend's archives.

I am not really a 'tag' person...I am actually terrified of tags/memes..... so I won't be tagging anyone. However, all are welcome to contribute their favourite food here.

Have a great weekend!

I wonder if it's money making if someone opened a shop and sold apoms here...
  At 11:05 AM Blogger Wennnn said:

  At 11:50 AM Anonymous zeroimpact said:
I thought apom balik is the other things with corn and nuts... hmmm
Never mind, sapu also, I also want some
So when we get to eat this from you ah???
This reminds me, I still have not put it up yet, this tag I mean
day-dreamer,
wah...now i got a 'partner in crime' liao. hahhaha....ya, be generous with the pisang raja.
okie, last time i ordered 5 pieces, i think dr chen took 2, gua sapu 3. :)
hi angel,
there's also indian apoms (called apom manis also) whereby they scoop diluted sweetened coconut milk on the piping hot apoms. sedapss also.
can get at bangsar (ara kiri area) and also taman tun pasar malam.

at the moment have not found any stall selling awesome apom manis (the ones you likey). the few that i buy from are at morning markets and pasar malams, but it's too thin for my liking.
Hi Uncle Lee,
Thank you for your kind words. :)

Wow....makan kuih bingka and kuih dada and Uncle Lee mia heart pun tersangkut liao. hahahah....
Mrs Lee must be some gourmet cook ya.

8-layer kuih? In Penang, we have those that comes in 9 layers of red, pink and white called 'kow thian kuih' in Hokkien or kuih lapis in Malay.
I like this very much too....peeling it layer by layer and popping it into the mouth.
Coming from a true-blue Penang nyonya family, desserts were always nyonya kuihs.....semua pun gua sukaaa.
hahahah....apom terbalik pulak! very sedaps when eaten fresh from the special brass 9-holes griddle.
BTW, can get apoms over at your place?

You have a great weekend too. :)
dr chen,
ya...ya....gua suka makan lor. each time i'm back in penang, gua mesti go visit that stall as well as the barn chan kueh stall.
aiyah...thinking about it also lau nuar liao. :D

winniethepooh,
me irresistable? errr....dunno ler.
hahahaha....you are cute.
pictures of food in the blogs always make me hungry too. :)

ah nel,
apom balik is soft and fluffy. it only turns soggy if you tapau in a plastic bag and then the moisture will make it wet...then tak sedaps liao. must eat fresh lar.

barn charn kuih is 'cis cake' in your kampung ar? i see...i see...


may,
you like apoms too?
food business are money-making biz ler. just a stall near the asian communities sure do roaring business one.

wennnn,
ya, i have tasted the ipoh versions too...very sedapssss...

zeroimpact,
i suppose different places give it different names. but like you said, semua gua pun sapu ler. :D
Slurpppss....this one I will sapu also!!
Thks for doing the tag. ;-)

Hello Nyonya, re Apom terbalik here in Canada? Tada la. No shops selling them.
Ahhh, but most of my friend's wives can make them, the 8 or 9 layer kuehs too.
There are lots of Malaysians, Singaporean, Indonesians here and 85% of them good cooks as well good at making kuehs. So we do get to eat Batu Pahat, Penang, Singapore, Kuantan, KL Ipoh apom terbaliks, or apom meletups, ones that don't come out well, arhaaa ha ha.
When you come here for holidays can make some Penang Nyonya ones. Boleh ka? UL.
king's wife,
the pleasure is mine. :)

wah...you are sure one lady who enjoys food. but how come still so small and petite wan? gua jeles ler. hahahah....
Hi Uncle Lee,
You always make me laugh with your hilarious comments. hahhahaha...
got new type of apoms ala Canada...apom meletup
hahhhaaa.....

Wah...can see that you have a big Asian community there and summore you have friends who are great cooks. Untung ler..
Kalo gua pigi holiday kat sana, I sure cuba make some nyonya kuihs for you and your friends. I better go check out the recipes...dowan the apoms and kuih to turn out into apom papan or kuih getah ler.
hahahaa...

You have a nice day, Uncle Lee.

as for apom manis, i'll stick with jelutong one. taste better with charcoal dapur.

I love these 2 apom too but it's getting more expensive and thinner now so the taste is not as good as before.... *sigh*
  At 11:59 PM Blogger Kenny Ng said:
lala lila tampong... ahpek beh apom, apom tim lok hai... ahpek chiak kao sai... LOL
angeleyes,
the apom manis that we get in PJ is sooooo paper thin. gua tak suka.
prefer the thicker and fluffier ones.

kenny,
hahahah...you can still remember this nursery rhyme. :D
  At 5:35 PM Blogger J.T. said:
Wah, the apoms look so yummylicious. I may pick up on your tag once I decide what I really like. Trying to think of something German but I have nothing I like in particular. I haven't come across something I like in America either. I am still into Malaysian food/cakes, come rain or shine. :)
the best apom i tasted is from penang lor..i lurveeee it! second best and more easily accessible is from sec 17 market.....better than nothing la
  At 12:05 AM Anonymous kat said:
I love the apom from the unka on Macalister Road (or is that Penang Road??) in front of a school. Because there is always a long waiting time, we always order 20-30 pieces!! And must eat rightaway when it is piping hot because it cannot keep steamed up in plastic bag and doesn't taste nice when cold.

Hi!
I love apoms and 'bang chang kuih" too. Hv u tried the stall in SEA Park Mkt? Considered good. Lots of kacang (well done). tomorrow i shall go for it. yum yum yummmmmmm.
Simply Divine! I love all our nyonya kuih, pulut tatai, kuih ketayap.

Top of the list is ban chen kuih, Apom balik and apom manis. Apom Bokwa too..yummy!

A chinese girl, friend of mine, asked me if I'd like "abang balik", but I don't even know what is it. May be an "omlette", (fried eggs with something inside?. Thanks for the answer, if I shall get any. my name is Stefano, from Italy,take care friends.
