IDFB chapter 2 : Indonesian snack

Just join a new group in facebook, called Indonesian Food blogger...
So I can claim that I am a food new occupation..ha..ha..
I kindda like the vision of this group "making world known the indonesian culinary", hmm it sounds too optimistic. But if you rely on the fact that indonesia holds the 2nd biggest facebook population, I believe its achievable... so lets do it!
the group has bimonthly challenge, it encourage bloggers making posts about the indonesian culinary in their own blog. off course every challenge has different theme. And today challenge is Indonesian snack. The first snack came to my mind was "getuk", sweet snack made from mashed cassava. I change it at the last minute, after I found the other recipe that quite "modern". Lapis singkong - layered cassava.
The first reason to choose this recipe was it use agar-agar, another type of jelly- made from sea grass. I wonder how the effect of this ingredient... will it be quite wobbly?  Well mission need to be done....
And after long night, I made it. Result was surprisingly out of my prediction. It was soft and chewy! but quite sticky.... the texture is like jelly candy and taste sensationally sweet. Glad I found this recipe from old woman magazine- Femina- .  I have little change by using strawberry and pandan pasta. that's why strawberry in the pic!
