KELUAK NUTS - BUAH KLUWEK



Buah kluwek or keluak nuts are a type of nut that is actually a seed. The oily, hard-shelled seeds resemble to Brazillian nuts. The meaty seeds are edible only after the poisonous hydrocyanic acid is removed by soaking and boiling them in water. Fermented keluak nuts become chocolate-brown, greasy and very slippery. Cooked seeds are used in a number of popular Malaysian and Indonesian dishes.

We just had some Indonesian Beef Rawon that used these Kluwek nuts. Delicious! You can buy Bamboo brand paste from most large Asian grocery stores.
