Seaweed Kuih Seaweed Cake

 This is an very interesting local kuih.( Kuih is like a western cake but usually has a sticky texture, often steamed not baked, & normally doesn't use butter at all.) i don't think seaweed is common in the local kuih recipes but this one does stand out. it's something really different. i remember someone was looking for idea of a japanese party few days back, maybe this one could be a twist for the usual green tea ice cream or mochi? (since there is seaweed.
