The weather in Bali in recent days changes very quickly. Sometimes it was very hot then the other days was very cold. The drastic change of weather sometimes disturbs our immune system so our body is easy to suffer from cold and cough. Drinking hot tea can is a treatment that you can take to keep those diseases at bay. However, drinking tea without any mate is tasteless.

Balinese provides many traditional snacks to be mated with hot tea. Amongst, there is a snack which is suitable with tea. It is hemispherical in shape with yielding but firm structure. Balinese usually make it with two different colors but have the same taste. Laklak is a good tea mate as well as a snack for offering.


You can get Laklak in traditional market or you can make it by your self as making laklak is very easy to do. Laklak is made from sticky rice flour. That flour is mixed with water and a bit salt to create dough. If you want to make white Laklak, the dough batter can be cooked immediately. But, if you want to make green Laklak you need special ingredient. Balinese add the extract of Suji leaves to get green color laklak..


The next step is cooking, and it is will be batter if you use a unique frying pan which is specially made to fry the laklak. This frying pan has five up to six cavities in it. Pour that dough into those cavities then let them cooked well. After that, use spoon or knife to help you take Laklak up from the pan. Then you will get pliable cake. It is not the end. Before eating Laklak you have to pour liquid palm sugar and grated coconut. Finally, Laklak is ready to be served with hot tea.


If you have no time to make this Balinese cake you can buy it in the traditional market. However you have to be a bit careful to select the green Laklak. Since there are Laklak sellers which do not use extract Suji leaves as a coloring ingredient. So the green Laklak is pale. Choose only the lush green Laklak as your tea mate.


It will guarantee you, that consuming hot tea with Laklak will make your body warm and spoil your tongue at the same time.
