Those who were entrepreneurial and possessed the skill of making Indian snacks started small businesses, particularly selling light bites known as kacang puteh’ or steamed lentils (kacang kuda) for side income. Their businesses eventually flourished, and more and more families joined the bandwagon by offering different varieties of snacks like murukku, fried nuts, and potato chips, expanding the industry into what we see today.
