SUMMER TRIP 2013 EATING KUE BASAH- ( JAJAN PASAR),TRADITIONAL INDONESIAN CAKE

I haven’t been home to Jakarta for well over a year. So it’s hard not to miss all the great food of my hometown.

This morning I woke up craving for something sweet, so I headed straight to Pasar (the morning  market) & got some Kue basah (Indonesian traditional cake).

Most of Traditional Indonesian Kue are Kue Basah, most are moist & soft in texture.

Kue Basah usually steamed or fried instead of baked.

Rich in coconut milk, sugar & rice flour.

As the result it can not last for more than a day or two, especially in hot & humid weather.

The good thing you always get a fresh Kue Basah at the Pasar.
