Kuih bunga durian

Kuih bunga durian 

Kuih bunga durian is a sweet dessert used for bertunang ceremony among Kelantan Malays. It has no smell. It is a soft yellow putty-like mass which is soft but can be molded into shapes. This one is shaped like the flowers of the durian tree. Fried shallots are sprinkled on top. It is delicious and very filling. Makan satu cukup kenyang.
