Introduction to Wajik Cake

Wajik or diamonds, for those of you who often play cards, are most familiar with this. But do you know that in Indonesia, perhaps even more famous on the island, there is a famous and delicious snack called Wajik cake?

Wajik cake is a traditional sweet-tasting snack originating from Central Java. Wajik cake is mixed from glutinous rice with brown sugar and then given coconut milk. Generally, the color is brown but not infrequently there are also pink or green ones and others. Wajik is one of the foods that are quite important in Java. In some traditional ceremonies, they use diamonds as offerings or as one of the main activities of a traditional ceremony, such as the Sekaten festival, there is a Tumplak Wajik ceremony. While in Pekalongan Regency, there is a regional Wajik specialty called Wajik Klethik.

History

Wajik cakes have existed since the days of the Majapahit kingdom. This is written in the Nawaruci book, Empu Siwamurti writes us. It wrote us around 1500-1619, one of the literary works thick with Hinduism. More or less in that year, the teachings of Islam were developed on the island of Java.

Fun Fact

Because diamonds are made of sticky rice, you can't eat them on an empty stomach because you can get ulcers later. Do you believe it or not? if I believe it because since I was little, it's always been said that.
