If there’s one thing that stands out about Mama Yeah’s Kitchen’s ngoh hiang, it would be the sheer size of it. The ngoh hiang is large and meaty, packed to the brim with fresh ingredients such as prawns, water chestnuts, minced meat, carrots, and onions. I like that the ngoh hiang contains sizable bits of water chestnut, rather than small bits that combine with the minced meat. This adds a delightful crunch with every bite, accompanied by strong hints of coriander.

However, I do find the skin a little too thin for my liking. On top of being a little salty and greasy, the skin breaks apart easily, making the ngoh hiang a little messy to eat. The colouring is also rather pale; it would have been nice to have a little more browning. Despite this, with the amount of ingredients in one ngoh hiang, I would say that this dish has great value for money! 

tantalising aroma wafts

A tantalising aroma wafts out once the lid is taken off the box of glutinous rice – where a hearty mix of sticky rice, small pieces of fatty meat, mushrooms, fried shallots and glistening roasted peanuts awaits. Albeit a little oily, the rice is moist and has a good amount of stickiness. Despite this, the dish feels light on the palate, and not heavy like the usual rice dishes. However, the peanuts seem a little hard and dry, which throws off the overall texture.
