Kripik and krupuk[edit]

Kripik is closely related to krupuk since it is popularly considered as a smaller sized krupuk. In Indonesia, the term krupuk refers to a type of relatively large crackers, while kripik or keripik refers to smaller bite-size crackers; the counterpart of chips (or crisps) in western cuisine. For example, potato chips are called kripik kentang in Indonesia. Usually krupuk is made from a dried paste consisting of a mixture of starch and other ingredients, while kripik is usually made entirely from a thinly sliced, sun-dried, and then deep-fried product without any mixture of starch.
