About Wa Ko Kueh
The Wa Ko Kueh was actually called Ko Kueh, and originated from the province of Fujian, China. It is actually sometimes found in the shape of a square. It was a popular delicacy among households, made during festive seasons often for ancestral worship.
The Ko Kueh was later renamed. It was steamed in small porcelain bowls with black sugar. The Chinese word for bowls is “Wan”, which is why the Ko Kueh is named “Wa Ko Kueh” today.
Today, apart from being used for Chinese festivals, Wa Ko Kueh also become a popular snack for family gatherings and snacks.
