Bubur Lambuk, also known as Bubur Masjid, is Singapore’s version of this famous dish. It is a soupy rice porridge that is made using meat (most commonly chicken), vegetables, cashew paste, raisins, spices, olive oil, and of course, rice! It is served all over Singapore during the month, and if you haven't tried bubur from mosques during Ramadan, you have to rectify that immediately!
 
Lucky for you, most mosques in Singapore distribute free Bubur for iftar every single day. Here’s a list of mosques where you can head to try some of the best bubur from mosques during Ramadan 2017.
