Kampar Chicken Biscuits / Kai Chai Peng

Kampar chicken Biscuit ( kai chai peng)

This biscuit is a very famous snack from Kampar, state of Perak. One who visited the northern part of Malaysia will always bring this as a gift for friends and relatives.

The unique is there is no trace of chicken in this little biscuit....Had no idea where the name came from...lol
They are deliciously sweet , savoury and a very distinct fragrance....I love it....

There's two type of chicken biscuits, thick soft doughy type and thin with crunchy texture..and I prefer crunchy thin type..the thinner the best....Once you start munching it, you'll hardly stop, very addictive..lols.
