Lupis (sometimes lopis) is an Indonesian traditional sweet cake made of glutinous rice, banana leaves, coconut, and brown sugar sauce.[1] Lupis is one of many glutinous rice desserts from Indonesia.[2] Lupis are sometimes cylindrically shaped like Lontong.[1] Lupis is usually eaten with thick palm sugar syrup and with shredded coconut toppings.[3] Often eaten at breakfast or as a side dish during the evening, lupis is often sold at traditional marketplaces throughout Indonesia and is a popular food found nationwide, but especially in middle and eastern Java[3] as well as West Sumatra.[4] Lupis is one of the top desserts that tourists who visit Purwokerto in Java seek.[3]

Cooking method


Lupis is made by first soaking glutinous rice in water, salt, and lime juice.[5] After draining the water, the soaked glutinous rice is moved onto banana leaves in single serving size portions to be wrapped for shaping.[5] The wrapped rice triangles are then put aside for the creation of the syrup condiment. Coconut sugar is dissolved in water and brought to a boil and left to thicken.[5] Grated coconut is then sprinkled on top of the unwrapped lupis and drizzled with coconut sugar syrup to be served.
