Local Singapore Snack: Kueh Tutu / Putu Piring

@ Food Republic food court – Vivocity (Harbourfront MRT)

Kueh Tutu (aka Putu Piring) is a traditional Indian snack made of steamed rice flour. The most common fillings are coconut and peanut. It’s almost a dying trade so you might need to go to specific places in order to find it. It’s soft and slightly chewy, and pairs perfectly with coffee or tea.

About $2-$3 for 5 pieces
