Today, I would like to share the recipe for Kuih Lemper, a traditional Javanese snack. I learnt this when I was visiting Kampung Sijangkang, a village in Kuala Langat where its population is primarily of Javanese descent. I was in the Eat.Travel.Write 4.0 delegation where we explored the different food of the people of that particular area.
