Pemetaan Budaya



Dodol, which is famous in Melaka, can be categorized as a sweet cake and now popular and liked in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Sri Lanka.

The ingredients are coconut milk, rice flour or glutinous rice flour, palm sugar, jageri (a red rock sugar derived from sugar cane juice or palm sugar), and salt. All these ingredients are mixed and stirred continuously over a high heat for about three to four hours. The end result is that the mixture becomes sticky, thick and with a sweet taste.

There are many colour versions of the dodol but are mostly dark brown, green and yellow. The taste is also varied, with durian, coconut and banana flavours, for example.
