thiwul rice





thiwul is one of the Javanese traditional food made from corn. old corn in the blend to become fine granules. then cook it with the boiled until cooked. the taste of rice  corn was slightly sweety and tasty. thiwul almost become the main meal most of the community of Java during the Dutch and Japanese colonialism. This type of food is the food for a low-class community, they consume these foods because they were unable to buy rice. besides, at that time also there is no food other than corn. rice can only be enjoyed by the colonizers and indigenous conglomerates including the king.

until the time of independence, there are still many people who consume these foods instead of rice. but now, these foods are difficult to meet in public. most people in Indonesia has changed to consume rice as a staple food.

in the present, thiwul still can find in some areas in Java. one of them can be met in jogjakarta Gunungkidul district. they no longer consume this food because the rice had no food, but only because the habits of society and has become a local tradition, making thiwul as local cuisine.

It is very interesting that this Javanese dish sustitutes rice. It seems delicious because it is made of corn, but I can not imagine my life without rice.
