    Yes JLC, actually this kueh is easy to make. I used deep frying pan, do the same style as you're frying french fries, throw everything in and less than 2min, all done. Try one yourself and if you too lazy to shape it, just make a small ball. Fry the ball then roll it onto fine sugar...super simple, right!
