Bah Jang

The Chinese New Year festivities have come and gone but the snacks remain. My neighborhood is full of them. Just yesterday these nubbins appeared in my office. It's a common snack: cook something up, wrap it in a banana leaf, sell on street.

This here might be Bah Jang. Or maybe it is different enough to warrant a different name due to its seasonal appearance. It's more or less a rice cake with several hard to identify ingredients. I think I tasted cocnut and something else sweet. I can't be any more specific.

Glutinous rice, water chestnut.
