Chwee kueh (known also as chwee kwee or chwee kweh) (Chinese: 水粿; pinyin: shuǐguǒ; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: chúi-kóe; lit.: 'water rice cake') is a type of steamed rice cake served with preserved radish. Chwee kueh is a popular breakfast item in Singapore and Johor. It is a part of Teochew cuisine, eaten in China, Singapore, Johor, Malaysia and certain parts of Southeast Asia.
To make chwee kueh, rice flour and water are mixed together to form a slightly viscous mixture. The mixture is then poured into small saucer-like aluminium cups and steamed, forming a characteristic bowl-like shape when cooked. The rice cakes are almost tasteless on their own, but are topped with diced preserved radish and served with chilli sauce.
