Kueh Tutu (嘟嘟糕) And Kueh Tutu Mould

Kueh Tutu also known as "嘟嘟糕" in Mandarin is a traditional Singaporean delicacy which is made using rice flour. These steamed rice cakes are made using a special kueh tutu mould (refer to the photo shown below) where the prepared rice flour together with filling is steamed for a minute or two before removing it and place on a piece of pandan leave and served.

This is the special circular Kueh Tutu Mould which is used to shaped the kueh into flower shaped. To make Kueh Tutu, the mould is first filled with some cooked rice flour, follow by spoonful of coconut/peanut fillings then another layer of cooked rice flour on top. Next a small piece of pandan or banana leaf is place on top before it is turned upside down on a small cheesecloth and place on the steamer rack (you can refer to the photo below) and steamed until cook through.

What To Get:-
1. Ailin @ 845 Geylang Road, #01-48, Tanjong Katong Complex, Telephone: 6743-2693;
2. SunLik @ 33 Seah Street, Telephone: 6338 0980. Price: S$18.00/mould


There are two type of fillings for Kueh Tutu such as grated coconut (which has either brown sugar or palm sugar(gula melaka) in it) or ground peanut which sold in either 3 for $1.00 or 5 for $2.50 depending on the stalls.

As these cakes will turn hard and dry after sometime, it is always prefer to be eaten immediate while it is still hot and freshly made from the stall. Although nowadays they have new flavour for this traditional steamed cakes but for me I would still prefer those with grated coconut filling.

I would be sharing a post on how to make these yummy Kueh Tutu in upcoming post soon. Stay tune!
