Lemang, or bamboo rice, is made from a mixture of glutinous rice, coconut milk and salt, usually cooked in hollowed out bamboo sticks lined with banana leaves. We found a way to cook this traditional dish in your modern oven without the bamboo stick, but still having the rice take in the wonderful scent from the banana leaves.
Pair the lemang with rendang perak, and revel in the moment as the light fragrance of the lemang mingles with the rich flavours of the rendang perak to give off a yummylicious experience that is not cloying and keeps your guests coming back for more.
Increase the amounts based on the same proportions, and you can make batches of aromatic rempah for your scrumptious Hari Raya spread.
To all our Muslim readers, Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, and we hope you enjoy this recipe! Let us know how your dish turns out, or even better, tell us about your cooking tips to make this dish even more sedap!
