Posted on November 28, 2005 | 4 comments
Last night on our way home, SC & I stopped by a small road side cafe for dinner. The place have some food cart that sell various meal such as “nasi goreng, mee goreng, etc”, “sate padang”, “pisang goreng” and “putu“. after browsing around we decided to order 2 portion of kwetiaw goreng ( so standard – nothing special ) and then SC ordered putu for dessert.
Putu is one of Indonesian traditional cake, there is 2 type of putu available here : Putu Bambu (make from salted coconut-milk with a lump of palm-sugar in the center of the dumpling and then steamed in a container made from bamboo shoot), “Putu Mayang” ( made from steamed rice-cake pressed through a perforated mould and thus resembling vermicelli, which is sprinkled with shredded coconut and palm sugar), both was very delicious usually eat while still warm, can be found at traditional market, usually at night, or sometimes you could found it in a wheeled cart that past through your house.
