Why Singaporeans Will Always LOVE Kacang Puteh (Even Though The Savoury Snack Is Rarely Sold In Public Now)

We'll even tell you how to make this delicious local treat at home!
25 February 2019

Back in the day, buying kacang puteh in cones made of newspaper every time one went to the movies was a given.

It was also a common sight to see vendors peddling a variety of roasted, steamed and fried nuts, beans, crisps and more out of pushcarts on the street. The savoury snack was Singapore’s original “popcorn”, though it was way cooler than popcorn ever could be. Best of all? It cost just a few cents! Read more in the gallery, then find out how to serve your own kacang puteh at home.

Rent a Kacang Puteh stall at your house party or event!

If you don’t want to take the trouble of putting together your own D-I-Y kacang puteh table, get in touch with the guys at PartyMojo Singapore. They will deliver, collect, set up and dismantle a stall with all the dry goods (i.e., sugar-coated nuts, salted nuts, seaweed nuts, garlic nuts, murukku and mixed nuts in old-school jars). They will also bring the cones. All you need to provide is a table! Prices begin at $220 for 100 servings within an hour.
