Jakarta Street Food: Rangi Cakes

It’s a rainy day in Jakarta, traffic slowed down to walking pace.  These crispy coconut flavoured treats would be just the thing at a time like that.

The vendor tries to get away with using a low heat, but the cakes don’t lift off the mould because they aren’t cooked enough, so he puts the cover over and cooks them some more.   No worries, jam karet (time is elastic), they’ll get done sooner or later.  The sticky looking stuff that he spreads on the cake is palm sugar.

Right at the end of the clip, see how he pulls his cart out onto the street, and the car just drives around him.  Try that at home and see how long your cart lasts!
