By chance, we passed by this house along Jalan Tengkera at night and decided to check it out. Outside the house is a stall selling putu piring! If I am not wrong, this is usually sold by Indian mostly and the Malay have their own version known as Kueh Tutu. Its actually a steam rice flour with palm sugar (gula melaka) in it, serve on grated coconut.
As the kids are watching a Million Stars Taiwanese singing contest on TV, the parents are at the door manning the stall. For 70 cents a piece, you get fresh and steaming hot putu piring serving right up to you. Its better to eat it hot, so we wasted no time and had it as soon as we reach the truck. Its very good combination, the sweet palm sugar with the salted and rich grated coconut, yummy!
The stall also sells other stuff like curry powder, home made kaya and of course, Melaka’s famous palm sugar!
