In the olden days before the existence of electric oven, porcelain oven was used to bake Beh Teh Saw. Coconut shells were kilned using charcoal in high temperature heat. The extremely hot coconut shells were subsequently flushed with cold water and pastry dough applied to inner side of coconut shell before being placed in high temperature heat for baking.
The end product of the pastry was shaped like a horse shoe, and hence the name Beh Teh Saw came about. In Hokkien dialect, “Beh” means horse.
You will no longer find conventional baking methods in present days as coconut shells and charcoal has been banned by local authorities for environmental reasons.
