紅龜粿 Ang Ku Kueh is a much-loved steamed kueh which influences several communities in Malaysia as a shared heritage. For the Chinese, the tortoise is a symbolic of longevity, to be blessed with a good life.
Longevity is translated into good wishes for our loved ones, especially to the elderly and is echoed within Peranakan culture to be prosperity, longevity, good fortune and a good life. Red tortoise cakes are also prepared for occasions that are culturally important to the Chinese such as a newborn baby's first month or birthdays of the elderly. Eating red tortoise cakes during these times is meant to represent blessings for the child and longevity for the elderly.
