Hum Ching Peng and Yau Char Kway

Sunday May 25th 2 to 5.30

I have been practicing these recipes for a while now and putting on a lot of weight in the process because of all the tasting. I used to pay AUD2 for a Yau Char Kway in Australia more than 10 years ago and it was FROZEN!

I am doing this because they do not sell this where I live anymore and the nearest would be Paramount which I find always leaves an after taste and a bad throat.  And they seem to only sell it in the morning when I am least interested to eat it.

Believe it or not Yau Char Kway tastes wonderful with Indian Coconut Chutney and Heavenly with Melted Chocolate… just saying!
