Kuih Kochi (or Kueh Kochi among Peranakan, which is also known as passover cake in English) is a Malaysian dumpling made from ground unpolished glutinous rice. For the Eurasians in Malaysia and Singapore, this snack is often sold at funerals. The black colour of the unpolished rice symbolises death, while the sweet filling represents resurrection.
