WHAT TO USE THESE BAMBOO FOR?
Use these non-treated bamboo for cooking lemang, ayam bambu, ayam pansuh, rice or many other traditional ethnic recipes.
A traditional food known in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei, lemang is glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk and salt, lined with banana leaves inside these bamboo sticks over a woodfire. Lemang is then served with rendang or curry.
Lemang is also a notable dish served during special occasions like Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha among these Southeast Asian Muslim communities.
If you’re looking for cooked lemang & rendang in Sydney NSW, recommend ordering direct from Warong @ 66.
In the Philippines, the thinner bamboo sticks are used to make puto bumbong.
