Word of the Week: Lemang

I'm on a road trip in East Malaysia. One of the most traditional dishes here is Lemang which the Malays prepare in celebration of Hari Raya. It is sticky rice with coconut milk, wrapped in banana leaves and stuffed into thick bamboo sticks, then smoked over charcoal for 7 hours. We had Lemang for lunch yesterday for a mere seven ringgit.
