Biji Ketapang

{{totalReview}}
Those who are unfamiliar with Kue Biji Ketapang might be surprised to find that this Indonesian cookie is not actually made from biji ketapang, or Indian almond seed, but got its name from its oval almond-like shape. This unique cookie is simply made from flour, grated coconut, coconut milk and eggs and cooked by deep frying the dough in hot oil. Let them cool then store in an airtight container so it stays crunchy for a long time. Enjoy this sweet bite-sized snack at any time of the day!

Directions

  1. Roast the grated coconut

    • Roast the grated coconut in a pan on medium heat until the coconut is dry. 

    • Set aside to cool.



  2. Prepare the dough

    • In a medium sized mixing bowl, add the sugar, eggs, salt and vanilla powder. Whisk until well combined and the sugar has dissolved.

    • Then add butter and whisk until well combined..

    • To the bowl, add the wheat flour and grated coconut, whisk until well combined. 

    • Add the coconut milk and knead the dough by hand until it is smooth.

    • Dust a chopping board with flour to prevent the dough from sticking.

    • Take a handful of the dough and roll it lengthwise on the chopping board, to get long tubes of dough about 1 inch in thickness. 

    • Continue until all the dough is rolled into tubes.

    • Use a scissors or knife, slice the dough using oblique cuts of ½ cm thickness.

    Prepare the dough


  3. Fry the dough

    • Preheat a pan with cooking oil on medium heat. 

    • Once the oil is hot, fry the dough pieces for about 3 minutes on 1 side, then flip to fry the other side. 

    • Once the pieces are a light golden brown, remove from the heat and drain on a paper towel to remove excess oil.

    Fry the dough


Plate and serve

  • Once it's completely cooled, you may serve or store it in an airtight container.
