When i was on my way back from town yesterday evening, i saw a big signboard showing that "Lemang Special Berlemak , Dijamin!!!" (Lemang Special with coconut milk, Guarantee!!!) on the roadside of the Kampung.
"Lemang = Glutinous rice cooked with coconut milk in bamboo"
Guarantee??? I was attracted by the word "guarantee" then i hopped down from my car and bought two Lemang.
" 1 for RM10" . When i was home, i quicky opened one of the bamboo stalk and i found that 40% of the rice inside the bamboo are uncooked!! T__T
Lemang cooking process.
The bamboo is placed at an angle near a fire for about four hours.
They say that, Hari Raya would be incomplete without Lemang.
