Apam Rambai from Negeri Sembilan

Hey all!

Have you guys seen or tried this Malaysian kuih before?

Pretty right?
What you see above is the improvised version of the kuih apam, nicely put n cups with all the cute colours mixed up. first thing that crossed my mind when i saw this pic was.."ooh malaysian cupcakes!"

Anyways, you can find these at almost all the kuih stalls, sold 5 for RM1 if i'm not mistaken. most of the time they don't come in cups and in a variety of different colours : green, pink, white. usually eaten sprinkled with coconut flakes. go try one if you haven't ok.

What i wanted to share today is in this photo:

Now these are traditional apams:) someone brought it to make up class today to share with everyone and i was amazed by it cuz i haven't seen it before. these apams are called Apam Rambai. taste the same, so i guess they use the same ingredients but they are steamed in rambai leaves and belong to the Negeri Sembilan tradition (just found out after i googled about it). p/s: Rachel is orang negeri sembilan:P

What's unique about this kuih is not just the rambai leaves, but they are usually eaten dipped in sambal tumis ikan bilis. u know, the same sambal you eat with your nasi lemak. yums.

Whoever's thinking of trying these apams can travel down to Johol, Negeri Sembilan. Good luck!:)
