Top Hari Raya Snacks in Singapore

Hari Raya, also known as Eid al-Fitr (Adilfitri), is a festive occasion celebrated by Muslims around the world, marking the end of Ramadan. Ramadan is a period of "fasting" where Muslims take no food or drinks from sunrise to sunset. This fasting period will allow them to be more appreciative, forgiving and disciplined, reminding them of the others who do not have sufficient. This end of Ramadan, is also the first day of their Islamic Calendar and also termed as Muslims' New Year.

During Hari Raya, families and friends often gather to share delicious meals and snacks. Here are some popular Hari Raya snacks that are often seen in houses:

1. Pineapple Tarts (Kuih Tarts): Sweet pineapple jam on top of buttery pastries, and they're a staple during Hari Raya celebrations and also similar to Chinese New Year. The key difference is that there is Pandan Pineapple Tarts, as green is indicative of Muslims' paradise.

2. Bangkit Cookies (Kuih Bangkit): A traditional Malay cookie made with a strong aroma of coconut. They are usually melt-in-your-mouth and have less of butter flavour but more of the subtle taste of coconut. Our Delightful Bangkit Cookies are roasted using charcoal, to give a more smoked and savoury taste. 
3. Makmur Cookies (Kuih Makmur): These are crumbly, buttery cookies filled with crushed peanuts inside. They are coated with powdered sugar and have a distinctively rich and flavourful taste. Our Pandan Makmur Cookies are delightful made with pandan flavour so there is a tinge of pandan fragrance in them, well balanced with the roasted peanuts. 
4. Kuih Kapit (Love Letters and Wafers): These are thin and crispy rolled wafer cookies, often flavored with coconut milk. The love letters are similar to Chinese New Year, but unlike the Chinese who prefer peanuts and almonds fillings, the Muslims version are often with nutella or chocolate fillings
5. Butter Cookies (Kuih Semperit or Dahlia): A buttery snack made with wheat and corn flavour, it is similar to the Scottish butter cookies. They are usually in flowery shape with red or green syrup on top, or even chocolate sprinkles. Our version is the Worthy Macadamia Cookies with chocolate chips in them and the nutty goodness of macadamias.
