Kochi or Koci (also known as passover cake in English) is a Malay dumpling (kuih) made from glutinous rice flour, and stuffed with coconut fillings with palm sugar.[2][3]

For the Eurasians in Brunei, Malaysia and Singapore, this snack is often sold at funerals. The black colour of the unpolished rice symbolises death, while the sweet filling represents resurrection.[3]
