Kuih Cincin from Sabah


Some time ago, a friend gave me a packet of kuih cincin to try. She told me that it was one of the things Sabah is famous for. ‘Cincin’ means ‘ring’ in Malay, but it doesn’t look like a ring, does it? Perhaps it refers to several rings in the middle of the biscuit.

I let some of my colleagues try and they loved it as well! Some have asked if I could have my friend bring some more packets of kuih cincin for them.

Apparently this kuih can hardly be found in West Malaysia. If so, it is hard and no longer fresh, according to one Malay colleague. I don’t know how true is this, but be sure to try it!

That’s what makes Malaysia unique – its variety of food from all its states! 😉
