This is one of Javanese snacks. I saw this recipe on my friend’s multiply, but unfortunately that recipe is in metric standard measurement, so I have to convert to US standard measurement, since I don’t have any kitchen scale.
Ketawa means laugh. I guessed it was given that name because it’s chapped and looks like a person that laugh :D.
