The taste of the steam Local Groundnut is more tasty than the Groundnut from China. Sometimes he has to use the China Groundnuts instead of the local groundnuts because there are great demand for it and also short of supply from local market.

For your information, 'Kacang Poi' is a seasonal pea. Normally it is availalble in the middle and towards the end of the year (From August to November). Mostly the supply of 'Kacang Poi' comes from Thailand. In Hokkien, they call it 'Ang Moh Toh Tau'.

I find that a lot of people (esq the local) does not know how to eat this. You have to peel the soft husk before you eat it. There are 2 types of 'Kacang Poi'. One with yellowish colour (Left Side) and the other one reddish in colour (Right Side). The reddish one tastes better than the other one.
