Right after my wanton noodle adventure over at Kiat Huat in Haig Road market and food centre, I darted over to Traditional Haig Road Putu Piring stall just a couple of rows away.
It was close to 11:00am, that is the time Traditional Haig Road Putu Piring starts to sell its lovely snack. Putu Piring with a delicious gula melaka centre is the Malay version of our famous local snack Kueh Tutu.
The staff almost production-like sans a conveyor belt were busy making and steaming the snack. I noticed many pair of eyes gazing at the stall while seated nearby; all seemed to be waiting for 11:00am.
Awards can be seen at the stall front, as well as a story cum review of their Putu Piring snack.
The ingredients to make Putu Piring are rice flour, desiccated coconut and gula melaka. The pandan leaves are used for segregating each piece of Putu Piring, adding colour and fragrance to the end product.
The Putu Piring are steamed into shapes resembling an UFO spaceship.
Five pieces of this lovely snack will only cost you $2. Generous pile of desiccated coconut rained on the Putu Piring.
The piping hot Putu Piring were soft and moist, a bite of it will bring out the oozing caramelized gula melaka.
The sweetness of the gula melaka was complemented further by the contrasting salty taste of the desiccated coconut making the snack extremely delectable.
Every bite gives you a melt in your mouth feeling.
Lao Beng’s Verdict
This is a must eat snack if you happen to be in Haig Road. It is recommended to consume immediately upon purchase so as to enjoy the hot piping goodness this snack produces.
