Pepena Kuih or kuih pepena is a kuih originated from Chenor, Pahang. The kuih itself is quite a rarity. The kuih is made from glutinous flour and shaped like a small star. The green color and its sweet scent are derived from the juice of the pandan leaf.
The kuih needs to be steamed in order for it to be cooked. It is slathered with sweet sauce made from wheat flour, coconut milk, pandan juice and course sugar.
