Tutu Kueh - a delightful snack

Tutu Kueh

Tutu kueh, with the kueh meaning cake, is a traditional steam rice (flour) cake with either shredded coconut or peanut filling placed on a pandan leave. It is one of Singapore 's unique food cultures, but unfortunately it is also one that is disappearing. This sweet treat used to be commonly found in Singapore but now there are not so many places selling this delightful sweet treat that children love.

So imagine my surprise and utter delight when I stumbled across Queensway Lau Tan Tutu Kueh at Suntec City. Tutu kueh, or keuh tutu, are made on the spot so you get to eat them piping hot. They even have chocolate and red bean filling for the more adventurous.

I got the coconut fillings, S$3 for 5 pieces and it was a nice nostalgic sweet little treat. The rice flour when steamed gave the cake its nice soft fluffy texture, it was neither too hard nor dry, and the moist coconut filling complimented the plain rice flour that surrounded it. Yummy! ^^
