Most recently, a home baker in Ipoh is garnering quite a bit of attention among foodie groups on Facebook for her - wait for it - petai mooncakes
We'll admit - we were a little weirded out by the idea in the beginning. However, we managed to get ahold of the baker, who told us the paste is made of potatoes, spices, and petai.
So, it's basically like curry puff but with mooncake pastry and chopped up petai. That doesn't sound too bad, actually!
The baker has also created a myriad of baked goods with petai fillings, such as paus, rice dumplings, and cucur udang
If you're interested to try it out, the petai mooncakes can be ordered via WhatsApp. They are priced at RM15 for two and RM28 for four. More details here:
