History

History of the Beginning

During early 1900s, a group of Tamil Nadars from Ettayapuram, India were among those Indians who migrated from India to Malaysia during the British colonisation of Malaya. Our great-grandfather Sinnasamy Nadar with his cousins, among other Tamil Nadars were resided at Gunong Cheroh in Ipoh. To compensate low income working in rubber estate, they started life sustaining business, by making Indian snacks in 1930s.

The Evolution of kacang Puteh

When started in 1930s, the term "Kacang Puteh" did not exist. At begining, the main snacks comprised Ulunthu Vadai, Masala Vadai, Murukku, Acchi Murukku, Omopodi, and Kondai Kadalai. The snacks were sold by carrying to nearby Ipoh Town.
In Ipoh Town, the customers were mostly Malay and Chinese but very few Indians. This encouraged our great-granparents and granparents to continuously make minor changes in recipe and methods to suit every ethnics in Malaysia. They also introduced some new products to the market. The name Kacang Puteh was also introduced to gain popularity among Malays and Chinese in Ipoh town. The evolution notably continued for 70years until year 2000 before becoming well-known Malaysian-Indian product nationwide.

Buntong, the Tourism Spot

In a 1973 tragedy, when many Gunong Cheroh residents were killed by tragic limestone fall, our granparents among the group of Kacang Puteh makers were all moved by Malaysian Government to a new village called Buntong, which is now well known as Kampung Kacang Puteh. The new village has rapidly grown famous to attract many customers throughout Malaysia, who loves irresistible traditional taste. Buntong is now visited by charter buses which visits Ipoh, and recognised as one of the Tourism spots in Malaysia. Buntong is also attracting customers during every Malaysian festivals such as Hari Raya, Deepavali and Chinese New Year, for producing Malaysian favourite Kacang Puteh snacks on every occasion.
Today, while some of our cousins in Buntong focuses in exporting Kacang Puteh products, we focus in Peninsular Malaysia market only. At CTS, we strive to keep our product more "Malaysian" by preserving the delightful traditional taste of our Kacang Puteh. Visit our Kampung Kacang Puteh anytime you would visit Ipoh! You will find us among many of our cousins of similar business. We believe at CTS Kacang Puteh, we would definitely delight you! :)

Evolution Of Kacang Puteh

When started in 1930s by our great-granparents, the term "Kacang Puteh" did not exist. At begining, the snacks produced comprised Ulunthu Vadai, Masala Vadai, Murukku, Acchi Murukku, Omopodi, and Kondai Kadalai only. The snacks were carried to nearby Ipoh Town daily for sales.
In Ipoh Town, the customers were mostly Malay and Chinese but very few Indians. It was difficult to sell products to majority of people. They were non-familiar with taste, they unable to remember or pronounce Tamil snacks' names, and they had very few choices. This encouraged our great-granparents and granparents to continuously make minor changes in recipe and methods to suit every ethnics in Malaysia. They also introduced some new products to the market. The name "Kacang Puteh" was also introduced to gain popularity among Malays and Chinese in Ipoh town. The evolution notably continued for 70years until year 2000 before becoming well-known Malaysian-Indian product nationwide.
Currently, Kacang Puteh refers all snacks which were introduced by them, and also the Indian snacks which evolved in recipe/methods to become Malaysian favourite.
