    Ketupat keriuk pera

    ~Edit: It appears I made a typographic error; it should read "Ketupat periuk kera". Oops!~

    All this started when I read Stewart McPherson's "Pitcher Plants of the Old World", and I found a recipe. Months later, last week, really, I was doing an innocent image search for Nepenthes ampullaria when I stumbled across a picture of some amp pitchers ready to fill with rice.

    I found a different recipe, and that, well, was that.




    YUM! Stewart McPherson's recipe is more savory, with the rice pre-boiled in coconut milk and a blob of mashed shrimp in the middle. The other recipe had me soak the rice in water, and not pre-cook it, but instead top it with a sugary coconut cream mix. Both were steamed: Pre-cooked a half an hour, and the raw for an hour. What's cool about he two recipes is that one calls for coconut milk, and the other the cream that rests on top of the milk (if you don't shake the can!). Meaning: it behooves you to make both recipes together.

    I only had 10 good pitchers, so I made a bunch of little foil cones to cook the rest of the rice in. Still yummy!

    I gotta do this again!

    You can eat them, yes. I didn't this time-- too chicken. That, and I didn't pick very young pitchers, so these guys were rather stringy. Next time...

    I've made it too.....the rice is great, the pitchers....not so much.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I want to make traditional ketupat, but I'm having an impossible time finding pre-made casings. Banana leaves are available; I'll try them next tine.

    Oh my gosh I'm going to try this! I just need some pitchers first lol. I'll need to catch a ventrata pitcher right when it opens, and I have maybe three or four about to.

    Do you have a link to the recipe you used? People in my house are going to think I'm crazy weirder than I already am when I do this. It's weird enough I keep plants. Weirder I keep carnivorous plants. Weirder that I would put rice in the pitchers an cook it. Weirdest I would eat the pitcher AND the rice. /)_-

    BAsically, you pick young, new opened pitchers, soak them for a few hours, rinse then set aside in the fridge. Soak the rice overnight, and follow the linked recipe. From Stew's recipe, you don't pre-soak it, but pre-cook it a little. I'll have to look it up. I have found, after starting this thread, that you can buy cans of coconut cream. This sure beats skimming it off the top of coconut milk!

    I'll post more detail when I find my notes.


    Oh, and Pineapple? Try and find some banana leaves (in the frozen section of an Asian market) to make packets for your family to enjoy. While at the store, get some hoisin sauce to dip it in (or you can serve it with curried chicken/fish/whatever, or be lazy and serve it with Chinese food). As soon as I can, and when I can afford it, I'd like to try more Indonesian foods, particularly from the same region. Mmmm!

    There's a couple other threads on the same subject if I can find them.
