Putu; the sweet (green) snack

Putu; the sweet (green) snack

Putu or kue Putu (pronounced: (cow-è) poetoe) are cylindrical soft pandan rice flour cakes of approximately 3 centimeters filled with soft (extremely hot) Javanese sugar. Putu is sold by street vendors and made on site. The seller pushes a little bit of rice flour 'dough' (often with pandan and therefore green in color) into a bamboo form, then a scoop of (you) Javanese sugar (Gula Jawa) and again a little rice flour mix. In the bamboo form, the whole is steamed over a large pan, causing the sugar to melt. In a few minutes it is ready and the putu is tapped from the bamboo form and gratinated with freshly grated coconut. Enjoy your meal and don't burn your lips with hot sugar! Do you also want to taste this at our instagram you can recognize the specific sound of a putu street vendor.
