Krupuk kulit (Javanese: rambak or Minangkabau: karupuak jangek, lit:"skin crackers") is a traditional Indonesian cattle skin krupuk (cracker).[1] Traditionally it is made from the soft inner skin of cattle (cow or water buffalo), diced, and sun-dried until it hardens and loses most of its water content. The diced and dried skin are later fried in ample hot cooking oil until they expand in similar fashion with bubble and yield a crispy texture. This fried cattle skin is then sealed in vacuum plastic bags to ensure and prolong its crispiness.

Serving[edit]

Krupuk kulit is often served as a crispy snack to accompany main meals. In Padang restaurants they are often offered as a side dish for nasi Padang or sate padang, and often served with kuah gulai seasoning. In Java, krupuk kulit is the essential ingredients for krechek, a krupuk kulit dish in spicy coconut milk stew.

Variations[edit]

Most of krupuk kulit sold in Indonesia are made from cattle skin, ether cow or water buffalo (kerbau). However, in some areas with large non-Muslim populations such as Bali, Batak lands, and some Chinatowns in Medan and other cities, pork skin krupuk kulit is also available.[2] Compared to common cow skin crackers, kerupuk kulit babi or pork rinds has lighter colour and more easily crumble.[3] There is also a variant uses frog skin as krupuk kulit kodok.[4]
