It’s festive season again in Malaysia. Eid celebration is quite a big deal for us, and commonly celebrated by Muslims and non-Muslims alike in the country by visiting friends and relatives and feasting all month long. There are plenty of traditional Malay delicacy served during Eid, but my must have is definitely these; lemang.
Lemang. A traditional Malay delicacy. Made from glutinous rice and thick coconut milk and cooked over fire by using bamboo stick. Taken with spicy rendangs or assorted curries. A delicacy eaten during Eid or other major festivals in Malaysia.
These are lemang daun lerek. One of the best in Klang Valley area, in my opinion. A tad on the pricey side, though. A stick of these could easily cost you Rm10-Rm16.
But I think it’s still worth the price, considering that it was perfectly done. The texture was soft, and yet not overly chewy. It tasted rich enough and complement my curry perfectly.
This lemang is sold somewhere along the roadside nearby Batu Caves area. 😀 Try it out if you must have some. Only available throughout the month of Eid, though. You might wanna contact them and place your order before you drop by, cuz this one’s pretty well known, and there’s perpetual queue for the lemang.
Cleffairy: Twice a year…not too much to ask, no? Neway, here’s wishing everyone who celebrates Eid a Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir dan Batin. 😀
