Ingredients and cooking method

Kue satu or kue koya is one of the simplest and easiest kue kering (traditional cookie) in Indonesian cuisine. It employed only four ingredients; mung beans, powdered sugar, vanilla essence, and water. The mung beans are being sautéed without oil until its green skin are cracked. Peeled and remove the skin, and mashed or ground the mung beans manually using mortar and pestle, or using electrical food processor or blender. The powdered mung beans is then mixed with powdered sugar, vanilla essence, and small amount of water to create the dough. The dough then placed into small cookie molds and then bake them in the oven of 150 degree Celsius heat. Then the baked cookies are aired and sun-dried for several hours before place them in air-tight glass or plastic cookie jar.[1]


The most common kue koya uses mung beans that created the white-colored powder. Another variant is called kue koya kacang tanah that uses common ground peanuts instead of mung beans, thus created a brown-colored kue koya.
