Ondeh Ondeh

Ondeh Ondeh

Another rice/coconut/pandan vegan treat in Singapore is Ondeh Ondeh. Here, the rice flour and pandan leaves are made into a dough (sometimes with pumpkin), then made into balls filled with either palm sugar, red bean, sesame etc, boiled, and rolled in desiccated coconut. About S$2 for 5 pieces. The chocolate version may not be vegan, so I would try to ask the seller if they know before purchasing.

Tutu Kueh

Random Singapore

Like coconut, peanut, sugar and rice? Try some Tutu Kueh! This traditional, vegan, Singaporean treat, is like a steamed rice cookie cake. Basically, they take glutinous rice flour, stuff it with either dessicated coconut or crushed peanuts, press it into a flower-cookie-like shape, and steam it for a couple of minutes. It is then served fresh and hot, on top of a square of pandan leaf. So it’s also gluten-free!

You can find Tutu Kueh in various spots around Singapore, particularly during festivals and at markets. Usually about $2.20 for 5 and made to order so its super fresh!
