Kue Satu

It's been a while since the last time I did my 'homework' for LBT, the last post was in March!
So glad the group has been restructured to keep up the flame alive :)

So, this is the task of the month
A very traditional Indonesian cookies mostly enjoyed by my parents' generation
Honestly, I never get the chance to taste this
Now that I know, I must say it's not bad - taste wise, but not the kind of cookies I would enjoy nor make again. The only person in my family enjoyed eating this was only my dad. My mum said he loved eating it during his childhood
Well, it's no regret going through the experiment. One curiosity killed is an achievement for baking enthusiast :)


 
 
I used recipe from my LBT baking friend, Rosdaniar
 
What you need:
 
100g fried green bean flour (I bought from Poon Huat)
50g caster sugar
2 tbsp water (I added 1/4 tsp more)
 
Method:
  1. Mix flour, sugar and water. Sprinkle water and mix well
  2. Sieve the mixture and shape with the mould (I used mould for kuih bangkit, but any chocolate mould can be used too except the silicone type)
  3. Arrange on an ungreased baking sheet
  4. Preheat oven to 120degC and bake for 15 minutes til firm
  5. Let cool and keep in an airtight container

 
 
The most frustrating part was the shaping. The dough was so crumbly and fragile that no matter how hard you press it to the mould, it'll stay crumbly when taking out from the mould and the tendency for the cookies to break was almost 100%!
I was pretty lucky to get more than 50% of the cookies in rather good shape
And it's also the noise from mould banging while taking out the cookies.. Don't bake this for you late night baking, you'll be in trouble LOL
