Sweets / kueh

Buah melaka

I would assume that many people from Lipat Kajang, at least the older generations, had gone through the phase of eating sweets made by the folks (especially women, mothers, grandmothers or men?) in Lipat Kajang. What do you remember?.

In this write up I will not delve with the ingredients and how these sweets are made, I am just going to name them (in Malay as spoke by Lipat Kajang folks. I find it difficult to name them in English, and I do not find any similar sweets in English). Hopefully with all the names I am going to mention, someone may add more and on the ingredients and how these are made, maybe by their mothers or sisters or grandmothers of even wives or even the menfolks themselves. Or they may add more of the names in addition to what I have already mentioned below. I am only listing the names from memory.

In Lipat Kajang many of these sweets are called ‘kueh’ and some may name them by the older term of ‘penganan’.

Nasi manis, Dodol, Peganan Talam, Buah melaka, Putri mandi, Dodol kukus, Buah ulu, Tapai, Apam, Hasidah. Lepat pisang, Lepat ubi. Kueh bungkus. Anymore?

Hope other Lipat Kajang-ites will add to the list.

Lipat Kajang people (or decendents) are encouraged to participate& contribute (Orang Lipat Kajang, atau keturunan, di jemput memberi sumbangan idea)

  1. whenever i go back to the kampong, i must stop at my late grandma'house, used to be next to tek sakar's house (now no more there i think) in ulu lanjut, she would quickly prepare "penganan talam" for me, without me asking to

    she knew that I like "penganan talam" so much, i am just addicted to it, till this day

    the other is lepat pisang yang saya tak akan jemu memakannya
