Kuih Wajid Temburong

I was in Ulu Temburong National Park, Brunei several months back. While walking around in Temburong Market, I came across the Kuih Wajid. Kuih wajid is one of the delicacies in Temburong District, Brunei. The kuih wajid there is different from the local kuih wajid in Malaysia.

From external appearance, it resembles the Malay kuih we have in Malaysia.

Kuih Wajid was made from biji Wajid, cooked with palm sugar. Didn't come across my mind to take photo of the biji Wajid (yellow in colour) which was sold in the market. :)

Have been drooling over these ever since I was old enough to read mum's cookbooks! Never tried them though. Aren't they also called "wajik"?

i read about the riches of King of Brunei with his large palaces and it may take him seven years to sleep in the same bed again.

ohh Sultan of Brunei may be rich and excessive but he also gives a lot of charity. But here we are talking about Brunei food.

To answer your question in the previous post, yes I did take some moon photos, one is on my previous post here.

I have never seen this before. Looks interesting and definitely lip-smacking

Shionge said...

Very interesting, the one we have in the local market is the one with bananas or something.

Chen said...

angeles,
I think the ori one is only available in Temburong leh :)

kok,
I think so, from what what the guide in Ulu Temburong told us.

I saw kuih with similar name at other place but i think the ingredient used are similar.

LB,
Habis makan all liao leh.

wyn,
kuih made from biji wajid cooked with palm sugar (instead of glutinous rice or pulut which we normally had). Something different loh :)

cc,
The taste is unique.
I can't exactly remember how's the taste too since it was few months back when I had it :)

Thanks for the link to your moon pict :)

I tried the different version of kuih with banana or jack fruit too, which is available in the local market :)

beng beng,
If u happened to visit Ulu Temburong Brunei in the future, don't forget to try out this kuih :)

misti,
I'm fine.
Nope, didn't eat wajid liao, but eating something else, including kangaroo meat, steak & ribs, fish & chips etc :)

hello..boleh minta resipi kuih wajid ni?

Chen said...

Sorry, I don't have the recipe. :(

biji Wajid (yellow in colour) <-- I believe it is called Padi Jawa in Brunei. Basically there are 2 types of wajid can be found here in Brunei.

1. Normal wajid - from glutinous rice
2. Wajid Temburong - from Padi jawa
