The Orang Asli: Food prepared in Bamboo
Im curious to know how the Orang Asli cooked their food. Its so traditional, using a section of bamboo trunk, hmmm... how interesting!!.. Its a method of cooking when you are in the jungle, no need of pots and pans.. just salt and a lighter..
Here's a demo from Kak Eren.
Before that, we took a boat ride to another muddy area to collect the shoots of curly ferns. Going there was another adventure, leaches again and get your legs stucked in mud..yughs!!
To prepare the rice - you need a section of bamboo trunk, some daun lerek to hold the rice on the bamboo.. push them in the bamboo and pour enough water to cook the rice.
To prepare the curly fern - only young shoot of curly fern needed, Ikan Bilis (white anchovies), Sayur charawat ( a kind of ginger) and salt..Put them layer by layer, one after one ingredients until fully. Pour in some water just 1/2 of the bamboo.
Lets get the fire burning, just put them on top of the fire woods and turned them accasionally.
Favorite Dish: Favourite Dishes - Bamboo Rice and Bamboo Curly Ferns. Very nice to eat, yummy.. !!!
