Tiffin is an Indian English word for a light mid day meal. In South India and Nepal, tiffin is generally an in between-meals snacks – dosas, idlis, etc. Also known as ‘mangkuk tingkat’ in Malay, ‘pua chan’ in Chinese or ‘thukku chatti’ in Tamil, tiffin carriers have been an important part of our Malaysian culture.

Tiffin is used widely in Malaysia as a carrier for packed lunches. It is usually used by farmers in padi field or vegetable farms as they often do not return home for lunch.
