Written by Hidayah Amin  |  Illustrated by Aziza Ali

Many of us have tasted Malay kuih and know how they look like, but do we know the stories behind the names and origins of the kuih that we love to eat? Why is a certain kuih of a particular shape or colour? What are the similarities between the kuih of different groups of people in the Malay diaspora?

This charming, illustrative A-Wesome guide of 120 Malay kuih aims to encourage a deeper cultural understanding of the diversity of Malay kuih. We hope that this guide will not only whet your appetite for delicious Malay kuih but also will serve as food for thought.
