Traditional Snacks Typical Of My Beloved City
In every city in various countries must have traditional food that is very clearly delicious. But are there any snacks in your place that were no longer produced and after a while many were selling them again?
Yup, in my city, Samarinda, there is such a thing as "Kue Cincin". Why is it called Kue Cincin or Ring Cake? I'm not sure why it's called Ring Cake. But some traders explain that the way of making it is by connecting the dough on the finger to resemble a ring. And when the cake is cooked, it is rectangular and in between there are 4 holes that you can insert your fingers, like using a ring.
"What are the ingredients used to make the cake?"
I had time to ask the merchant at that time. The ingredients used are rice flour, bananas, brown sugar, granulated sugar, boiled water and cooking oil. And for how to make it I can't explain it because when I bought this cake it was already cooked. So I couldn't see the process of making it directly and of course this cake is cooked by frying.
"What about the texture and taste? Is it sweet?"
Of course the taste of this cake is sweet thanks to the mixture of brown sugar and sugar in it. And the texture is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. This cake is best eaten while relaxing and accompanied by a cup of coffee or plain tea. The reason why it is drunk with plain coffee or tea is because this cake is already very sweet. So you don't need to add sugar in your drink or you can add a little sugar so it doesn't taste too bland.
Oh ya, earlier I explained why this cake was rare and finally booming again, right? That's because our deputy governor is very fond of this traditional cake and had complained that he was having a hard time finding this cake on social media. And it wasn't long before many sellers ended up selling this sweet snack all over the city and were very grateful that so many people bought this cake.
And for the price this cake is very cheap, the price of 1 cake is sold at a price of $ 0.067 only. Pretty cheap isn't it?
So, that's one of the traditional snacks typical of the city of Samarinda, my beloved hometown. Actually there are many traditional snacks typical of my city, it's just that I haven't had time to explore them because I'm busy with my current job. Just pray that I'm not too busy so I can look for other traditional cakes you haven't seen before.
