Ang Ku Kueh 红龟糕

Ang Ku Kuih 红龟糕 is one of my favourite "kuih".  It's one of the nyonya kuih which traditionally has various fillings - grouded peanut, green bean paste, salty bean paste, etc.
It's been years ago I have not tasted this kuih and kinda missed it so much, so I decided to drive to 吉祥食品 (Blk 1 Everton Park, Singapore; 8am-5pm daily, Sundays & PHs - closed).
It's only 1/2hr after the shop opened early in the morning and there were only 2 types of fillings (grounded peanuts & green bean paste) available at that time, so I grabbed enough for home and our good friend, Diana.  She's not tasted ang ku kuih from this shop and she likes the green bean paste filling.
Probably one of these days should learn how to make our own ang ku kuih and various nyonya kuih.
Both looked alike! Find the difference - look at the pandan leaves.  The 4 edges which have been trimmed is green bean paste filling.
