My dear brother bought me this hainanese kueh-kuen for me to try. We called it 'Yi-Puah' in hainanese. This is one of my favourite kueh, can't remember when was the last I had it. He bought it from a famous snacky stall in Toa Payoh, operated by a hainanese auntie. The kuehs are hand-made by her. This was recommended by Channel U sometimes ago on tv. Her business was very good as the Q was pretty long and by the time my brother's turn to place his order, left on the rack was abt 10 over pcs so he took all. The skin texture is made of glutinous rice flour and as for the fillings, is a mixture of grated coconut cooked in gula melaka/brown sugar with added roasted crushed peanuts and sesame seeds. It's so delish! I had 3 pcs in a day, 2 at one go for my tea-break and 1 for my dinner... haha.. so sinful but who cares!
