Lemang, A Must Have During Eid

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.

Lemang,lemang! Who want one? Rm10 -Rm16. Darn. Price raise. #elliecleffairy #raya #hariraya #instafood #lemang #traditionalfood #malaysiandelicacy #malayfood

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.

Soft, enough ‘lemak’, not overcooked, not chewy or hard. Yummy! #elliecleffairy #instafood #raya #hariraya #malaysianfood #traditionalfood #malaydelicacy

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.

Getting my twice a year lemang fix. The lemang daun kerek.

This lemang is sold somewhere along the roadside nearby Batu Caves area. πŸ˜€ 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. πŸ˜€

    Selamat Hari Raya to you. No one invited me to rumah buka yet. I am waiting anxiously for my rich neighbour to pitch tent outside their house to invite their VIPs again. I will get free makan! Yay!

      Same here, nobody invited me yet. Oh well…I’ll just have to hunt food on my own. Tsk! The perks of having friends who are all married and have families of their own. They simply wun have time for you during festive seasons or school hols. πŸ˜›
