Some olden days snacks have been revived and the more popular one is Putu Mayam. Last time, an Indian man used to cycle around my kampung selling putu mayam. Then, this snack sort of disappeared for many years. It re-appeared again, about 10 years ago and now, many people are into selling putu mayam or string hoppers. You can now easily find putu mayam stalls at wet-markets, hawker centres and pasar malams.
Basically, it is pandan flavoured, rice flour, pressed into strings and steamed. It is served with grated coconuts and brown sugar. This is a hit with children. Usually, a packet costing RM1 will have about 5-6 pieces of this fragrant green thread.
