Kuih are bite-sized snack or dessert foods commonly found in Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia (where it is called kue), and Thailand (Especially Phuket and Phang-nga), as well as the Southern China provinces of Fujian and Chaoshan, also in the Netherlands through its colonial link to Indonesia. Kuih is a fairly broad term which may include items that would be called cakes, cookies, dumplings, pudding, biscuit, or pastries in English and are usually made from rice or glutinous rice.
