This sweet Nonya kueh, also known as kueh jagung, is easy to make and makes a great kueh introduction for little children as it comes with delicious sweet corn. While the recipe is straightforward and fuss-free, some might find the banana-leaf-wrapping step to be troublesome or cumbersome. If that’s the case, you can skip the banana leaves and pop the mixture into a jelly mould as well.
