Pastels are derived from the Portuguese influence in Indonesia. It is a type of kue made of thin pastry crust, with a filling of meat (usually chicken or beef), vegetables (carrots and bean sprouts), rice vermicelli, and sometimes boiled eggs, then deep fried in vegetable oil. It is consumed as a snack and is commonly sold in Indonesian traditional markets.[1] The snack is very popular during iftar for Ramadan.[1]

The similar North Sulawesi version replaces the thin flour pie crust with bread, and is filled with spicy cakalang (skipjack tuna). This variation of the snack is called panada.[2]
