Pulut panggang – grilled stuffed glutinous rice in banana leaves😋
Happy hump day, friends🤗. Sharing a gluten-free savory dessert ‘kuih muih’, that was originally made with dried shrimp but it is now veganized.😁
Pulut panggang is a Malay word where pulut translates to ‘glutinous rice’ and panggang ‘grilled’. It’s one of my favorite dessert that’s best served during tea time or as light breakfast snack. These bite-sized treats are available at street hawker vendors & cafes in Malaysia. 😊
Recipe (yields 8-10 parcels)
~ 1 cup glutinous rice, soaked for at least 4 hours/overnight, 1/4 – 1/2 cup coconut milk, few pandan leaves & banana leaves
~ 1/2 teaspoons salt
~ 1 cup finely shredded coconut, 3 tablespoons sambal (check highlights for recipe under ‘chili paste’)
~ sugar, if needed and salt to taste
✔️Place a large banana leaf on a steamer, enough to hold all rice leaving some space as rice will expand after cooking. Tie 2-3 pandan leaves into knot & steam rice until soft, about 30-40 minutes in high heat. After 15 minutes of steaming, stir in 1/4 cup coconut milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt and mix until well combined, you may add up to 1/2 cup for a more coconut flavor. You may add some butterfly pea flower juice for coloring too.
✔️Filling how to: In a heated non-stick pan, toast coconut shred until lightly browned, then stir in sambal and continue to cook until well combined. Taste test and season if needed.
✔️Cut few banana leaves into rectangles, about 5’X8′. Place 1/4 cup of rice in the middle, wet fingers with some water and press rice down while spreading it into a thin layer. Add 1 tablespoon of filling in the middle, close gap by bringing rice together and roll into a log. Seal both side with toothpick. Grilled wrapped rice until you see charred marks. Once grilled, rice remains soft for the next day. Some like to brush oil on banana leaves before grilling for a more smoky flavor, but I like mine just like that.
Hope you like this treat and have a great Wednesday!🤗
