This is another traditional cookies. People around Boja district at Kendal, near my house, usually make it for a celebration, such as Eid El Fitr or Christmas. They do not familiar with nastar, kastengel or gingerbread cookies in festive season but this.
It is such a simple cookie. We need only 3 ingredients to make it : glutinous rice, coconut sugar, and air kapur sirih (lime stone water?). Besides, we don't need an oven or steamer, because it is cooked by the sun. Interesting, right?
By reading the ingredients we can predict how this cookie is: firm, grainy and sweet. We need some really good teeth to eat it, far different with buttery modern cookies :)
