Shat Kei Ma (Crispy Egg Flour with Molasses Biscuit) bought From Kepong Baru Wet Market

Ipoh is famous for its’ Shat Kei Ma biscuits. Nowadays you can buy Shat Kei Ma, virtually in most places in Malaysia. Shat Kei Ma (Crispy Egg Flour with Molasses Biscuit) is made from eggs, salt, sugar, baking powder and flour, shaped into flat strips that are fried until crispy. Then they are bound together by molasses and then made into blocks. In the olden days, lard is actually added into the Shat Kei Ma. I am not sure the one I bought from Kepong Baru wet market has lard added or not but it is very tasty, crispy and fresh! Eight blocks of these Shat Kei Ma cost me RM3.30. One thing about Shat Kei Ma, once you start eating, you can hardly stop! So, get a packet Shat Kei Ma and try it out when you visit Ipoh, next time!

Claire : Maybe the block size at your place is bigger, therefore more expensive. BTW, I bought it from Kepong, KL not Penang lah. But if you buy from Penang, I am not sure how's the taste would be like. ha ha!LOL

I'm just curious... how's the taste of Penang Sat Kei Mah differs from KL Sat Kei Mah?

Pete said...

Tching : Very likely if you buy from Penang, maybe imported from Ipoh Perak, ha ha ha!

I like Shat Kei Ma but cannot eat too many of it! Will feel bloated! I like those which are soft and not rock hard!
