I just arrived in a restaurant for a quick lunch when I saw a lady sitting at a table, quietly preparing these cone shaped cases, made out of coconut leaf. I right away knew what kind of food she is preparing, kue clorot!

Consists of mainly rice flour, brown sugar and coconut milk, this traditional Indonesian pastry / snacks is steamed to perfection. Once it’s ready, you can taste the jelly-gooey texture which is slightly on the sweet side. But as a child, my favorite part of this traditional cake is simply unwrapping it, eating it slowly while watching the long coconut leaf curl loosely below your hands.
