  4. Hi Rose,

    it was wonderful coming across your website. Thank you for taking the time to share your recipes. can’t wait to try them out. I have a couple of questions.

    For the sugee cookie, what can i substitute the milk powder with ? BTW, I am currently living in Toronto, canada. I am a singaporean. Also, do you have a recipe for tahu bakar (grilled tahu)with the stuffed bean sprouts etc. I am especially looking the sauce that goes with it…I am missing it so much !

    Help ! Love your site, have bookmarked it.

  5. Add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of salt to your batter. It enhances the taste of any kueh.Remember, when making any type of kueh, do not forget to add salt

  6. Also, you can add 1 to 2 drops of apple coloring unless you don’t mind the dull look of the kueh.

    • Dear Melissa,
      Thank you very much for your concern and for generously sharing your knowledge. Thank God, my legs have healed and so have my triggered fingers. Have not been very active in baking as my eyes hurt, partly also because of Graves Disease. Will try my best to post and reply whenever I can. Greatly appreciate your helpfulness and kindness. Blessings! Rose
