In addition, the island of Flores has several delicious culinary delights, one of which is called Jagung Titi or called Patei Silaita. The traditional food is called Titi corn because the processing of the corn kernels is pinned or mashed on a rock.
Titi corn is a traditional food from the ancestral heritage of the Flores people. This traditional food has several advantages in the storage process and of course, it is easy to carry everywhere. This traditional food is also usually provided when receiving banquets for guests.
The corn used to make this snack is not corn that is commonly found on the market, but white pulut corn which has a sticky texture like sticky rice and this type is a variant of local maize spread in East Nusa Tenggara.
Titi’s corn processing doesn’t seem complicated or simple, but it takes a long time. The method of processing is by frying the corn until it is half cooked. The hot corn is then taken little by little and then pinned on a flat stone until the corn is flat. Processing up to the walking stage is called Titi corn.
