About the Kacang Puteh Man
This culinary icon is steeped in history, and offers a delightful journey through the flavors and traditions of yesteryears.
Kacang Puteh (pronounced “ka-chang pu-tay“), which translates to “white nuts,” is a beloved snack that has been an integral part of Singaporean culture for generations. In 1950s and 1960s Singapore, the sellers were typically immigrants from India and were affectionately called Kacang Puteh Men. He roamed the bustling streets, pushing his cart filled with an array of delectable, crispy, and roasted nuts and seeds. These crunchy morsels were a treat for both young and old, providing a glimpse into the city’s rich heritage.
Kacang Puteh is truly a heritage and flavour that has stood the test of time. Moreover, it is part of our cultural tapestry that makes Singapore so unique.
