Penang local Desserts and Sweet Broths encompass a wide range of sweet broths. These were concocted by the Peranakan Chinese not only in Penang, but also in the Strait Settlements of Malacca and Singapore, with some variations in between.
local Sweet Broths used to be a popular item taken especially on weekend afternoons, when both the men and children are at home, and the local womenfolk have a chance to display their culinary skills. This has been relegated to the pages of history, as many modern housewives do not inherit the skills or recipes. Nonetheless, with greater awareness of local culinary heritage, many people are today relearning the skills for created these tasty sweet dessert.
The main ingredients in many local sweet broths are coconut milk and glutinous rice. A variety of tubers are also included, among them taro, sweet potato and so on. Generous use of sugar makes most local sweet dessert, as the name suggests, sweet.
On this page, I am celebrating the various Penang local sweet broths by showing you what they are, and where possible, offering you the recipes to make them. I am fortunate that both my wife and mother-in-law are quite capable at making these broths and enjoy making them regularly.
