Melaka Cuisine: Nyonya Pai Tee


Kuih Pai Tee is a delightful appetizer from the Nyonya or Peranakan community in Melaka. Pai Tee is also known as "Top Hats" that refers to the traditional top hats filled with shredded turnips and eggs garnished with coriander leaves in deep fried shell. 

All sized to fit one mouthful. Nyonya Kuih Pai Tee are virtuous snacks that showcase clean flavors and combination of fresh ingredients. Other veges that one can come across would be cucumber and French beans.

Making Kuih Pie Tee is not easy because it requires ample amount of patience and time. The taste is so good and you will love the crispy of the shell and the freshness of the veges.
