Krupuk kulit (Javanese: rambak or Minangkabau: karupuak jangek, lit:"skin crackers") is a traditional Indonesian cattle skin krupuk (cracker). Traditionally it is made from the soft inner skin of cattle (cow or water buffalo), diced, and sun-dried until hard and lost most of its water content. The diced and dried skin later are fried in ample of hot cooking oil until they expand in similar fashion with bubble. This expanded fried cattle skin is crispy, and then wrapped in vacuum plastic bags to ensure and prolonged its crispiness.
Krupuk kulit is often served as a crispy snack to accompany main meals. In Padang restaurants they are often offered as side dish for nasi Padang or sate padang. In Java, krupuk kulit is the essential ingredients for krechek, a krupuk kulit dish in spicy coconut milk stew.
Most of krupuk kulit sold in Indonesia are made from cattle skin. However, in some areas with large non-Muslim population, such as Bali, Batak lands, and some of Indonesian Chinatowns in Medan and other cities, the krupuk kulit made from pork skin are also available.
