Kuih Akok is a sickly sweet dessert , some people described it as an egg pudding .The ingredients for making akok is simple – santan, eggs, flour, palm sugar – but not all akok are created equal. Sometimes you see despicable and sad looking akok at the stalls (especially at the pasar Ramadan) – with the smooth surface, the too-light brown colour . And when you run into wrinkled akok with burnt bits at the edges- it might be your lucky day !
We usually get our akok from the stall at the market in Tumpat, but they sold out rather quickly and we were akok-less. Desparate, we asked our neighbour and a few Mak Ciks if they know of any akok sellers and they pointed us to the Akok-maker ! Wahhh, that is even better than getting akok from the stalls- which are just acting as the middleman for the akok maker.
So we went for a walk…
We were told to take the road beside Masjid Ismali. This mosque was built back in year 1900 , you can read more about the mosque by clicking here
The akok are ready at about 9 am. The taste – Wonderful – these are good akok indeed.
