Sweet Delicacies


I went to Kota Bharu last Friday to visit my in laws. My mother in law was down with fever so we quickly rushed to KB to see how is she doing. Ye la...masa kecik2 kita demam, mak jaga. Now it's our turn to be there for them when they are not well, right? Fortunately we are not that far so we can visit them just anytime we want. Last Friday, we left for KB early morning and had to be back in KT the same day because yesterday both my husband and I had to go to work.

Dalam rushing2 tu sempat lagi snapped photos here and there. I stopped by at a stall in Wakaf Bharu to buy some Kelantan sweet delicacies such as Akok, Beko and Tapai. My husband and children like the Akok at the stall. Maknya tak pandai lagi makan Akok sampai sekarang but I love Beko and Tapai so much. I asked for permission to snap some photos at the stall and the lady was so pleased, she gave us 6 extra akok (it's not 1 or 2 extra but 6!). She really makes me feel so guilty. Baiklah dia..and she is so friendly. Kalau nak berniaga kenalah friendly camtu. Semoga Allah murahkan rezeki dia.



I was told-the more wrinkles the better and tastier! Akok is made of duck eggs , brown sugar, coconut milk and flour . Sometimes chicken eggs are used because duck eggs are expensive!.

Most people prefer to buy Akok which are baked the traditional way because they taste better!


The coconut husk used for baking akok. All parts of coconut are useful...



Beko and Flower Akok


Some snacks

And this is my favourite

Fermented rice wrapped in banana leaves
