Searching For Bonda
The Proof Of The Pudding Is In The Eating.
Unwrapped the old Chinese newspaper back home and the glutinous rice (pulut) is fragrant with coconut milk and is evenly cooked.
Remember to ask them to split open the bamboo tube. Don't attempt to do it yourself unless you have a hardy knife and garden gloves. The bamboo tubes can be dangerously sharp.
A banana leaf is wrapped around the rice to add flavour and to prevent it from sticking to the bamboo surface when cooking.
