Pukis is one of the favorite traditional snacks in Indonesia specially in Jakarta. You often see sellers on the street selling this cake. It definitely brought back nostalgic childhood moment every time I have this snack.
I used to go with my mom to the morning market and we often brought back home this snack. Pukis is actually very easy to make.
