Nga Ku

Every year, Mom makes it a point to make some fried nga ku for CNY. We dont consume much but we do make it as gifts for family and friends.

Headed out to Tesco Extra last Sat to get a box of 20kg. It cost RM59.60. It contained really fresh ones and of good sizes too. Not too large and not too small. Just right for slicing and frying them.


Each year, Mom ventures out into making nga ku, love letters and muruku for own consumption as well as for family and friends. Years back, mom used to go into it almost full time, for sales during CNY. It was good money! But recent years, age is catching up and I dont see a point for her to work her butt out so hard anymore. She should slow down and enjoy the season a bit. We used to help mom each night after work, and made them till the wee hours of the night. But not anymore lah. I also tired of it edi ....

My inlaws still make it to give to relatives and also friends.

So you can imagine every Sunday night we have the remaining nga ku with pork for dinner....and also you can imagine where all the 'faulty' nga ku goes to - hubby and boyboy's tummy! SIGH.....

I like to eat fried nga ku but I have never fried them myself because it really takes a lot of work to slice the nga ku thinly and have to stand near the hot oil to deep fry them. Are those fried nga ku in the photo made by your mother?
