History

The origin of makmur is somewhat uncertain and believed to be derived from the Middle Eastern Ma'amoul that was introduced by Arab merchants throughout the Malay Archipelago. Since then, makmur has been a part of the traditional kuih of Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei. In 2015, makmur is featured in the new series of Singaporean stamps.[2]
