Easy Lemang (sarawak)

Traditional lemang is made by stuffing glutinous rice inside a bamboo stick and cook over a open fire for a few hours until cooked. When we are aboard this is not possible. This is a short cut method in making lemang fast and easy. Whenever I cook some curry, I would made some using some of the leftover coconut juice.

230g glutinous rice, soaked for 2-3 hours
½ tsp salt
250ml thin coconut milk (from ½ grated coconut)
Banana leaf

Steam glutinous rice for15 minutes. Sprinkle rice with the coconut milk every five minutes, using a fork to mix it in properly.
Place a piece of banana leaf on a top of large sheet of aluminum foil. Spoon rice on banana leaf and press rice tightly together
Roll up rice with the banana leaf and foil into a cylindrical roll. Grill in oven for 10 minutes and serve with rending or serunding.
