Alannia,

This is the 3rd time I am making it.

Everytime it finished within a week. This time I made more and it's in the 2nd week, and still okay. You have to keep in air-tight containers. As all the ingredients are dry, I pressume it can keep for a month or so unless the belinjau turns soft.


Num,
It is a cracker made from the seed of a plant, not much selling in local markets now and mostly imported from Indonesia. It has a bitterish taste, but as more you eat, the more you like it. Very Happy

Cindi, if I add in the belinjau, will it be soft after some time? How long can I keep this?
