Jajan pasar (market munchies) in Java, consisting of assorted kue and usually served as a food gift or as a dessert for a rice dish known as tumpeng.

Kue is a fairly broad term in Indonesian used to describe a wide variety of bite-sized snacks, including cakes, cookies, fritters, pies, scones, and patisserie. Kue demonstrate influences from indigenous, Chinese, Indian, and European cuisines, as well as European cake and pastry influences. For example, bakpia and kue ku are of Chinese Peranakan origin; kue putu is derived from the Indian puttu; kue bugis, klepon, nagasari, getuk, lupis and wajik are native origin; and lapis legit, kue cubit, kastengel, rissoles and pastel are European influenced.
