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.

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!
