Kue Rangi

Kue Rangi is another Traditional Indonesian Desserts.
yupppp... a lot of the Traditional Indonesian Desserts are totally Vegan :D

It's made out of sago flour and coconut slices and a tiny bit of salt to taste.
then "baked" on this traditionally homemade baking tray.
usually sold on a street food vendor, served on a banana leaf shaped into a plate, cleverly secured with "lidi" (the ribs of palm leaf)
and drizzled with thick sweet palm sugar, sometimes jackfruit / durian are added for a more intense flavor there.

It's kinda crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside and the sweetness comes from the drizzled sauce............ yummmmmmm............................

What I ate is the one I ordered from a Restaurant at a Mall.
The one you found on the street......... is way more authentic and yummier.
Too bad they're a bit hard to find nowadays.....

But here's a photo of a Kue Rangi seller from Selby

I just love how Selby takes a lot of detailed pics of everything.
Selby, You Rock !! :)

That other plate is Karedok
Another Traditional Indonesian / Sundanese Raw Salad, served usually mixed with sauce made of a tiny bit of galanga (Kaempferia galangal L) + peanut sauce and palm sugar.
I prefer to separate the peanut sauce so I can add just exactly how much sauce I want :)
But more on post on karedok later.... :)

btw, Do you see the jar filled with pickles ?
It's called acar, and it's filled with cucumber, carrots, shredded cabbage, lightly pickled......... well... I don't think it's pickled because it's not pickle-y sour but instead, it's lightly soaked in sugar-salt-chili water (I think)
But it's there on every table so everyone can have as much as they want ;p

Kue Rangi rules.......... :)

It looks bigger compare to the one from the street vendor. Too bad, it didn't taste as good as you expected. Hopefully, you can find the street vendor's one :) said...

you know how they say quality over quantity ? :)
but the Kue Rangi that I had was pretty good considering I was craving it at the time.
