Kueh Bangkit (Coconut Cookies)

Kueh bangkit is made with tapioca starch and coconut milk. It's one of the must-have cookies during Chinese New Year in Singapore.

Good kueh bangkit crumbles easily in the mouth, then quickly melts into nothingness as it releases a wonderful coconutty aroma. The cookies are baked gently, so they keep the white colour they get from coconut milk and tapioca starch.

Butterscotch Popcorn

To make corn pop, the moisture in the kernel must be heated and turned into steam. When the steam builds up enough pressure, it bursts through the wall of the kernel, creating popcorn.
