Food Of Kelantan - Part 1

Some foods are authentic to Kelantan and some of them I rarely find them outside of the state other than the neighbouring states where the Kelantanese have spread out in search a living or followed their spouse. The South of Thailand being a border nation where people of both nation criss cross the border like there is no border is an exception. Weren't they part of Kelantan once upon a time?

This posting on Kelantan foods should satiate some of the readers desire to see some of the foods they must have missed.
