Why I Love This Recipe

Putu Ayu or Puteri Ayu is one of the Indonesian desserts/snacks originated in Java. It is basically a steamed pandan mini cake with grated coconut on top. Ayu which in Javanese means beautiful is indeed the visual point of this cake because the shape and color of Putu Ayu make a very pretty appearance.
