Glutinous Rice Cake

28 March 2010

Glutinous Rice Cake

Just perfect to prepare on special occasion
Where bonding represents this kind of dessert
A tradition that passed through generation
Cooking this food is always a pert

Experienced to cook a mawkish sticky rice
Wherein body language is in rhythm with stirring
Endure the hardship of stirring using ladle as device
Each family member in alternately stirring to add a zing

Cook sticky rice with the pandan leaves
Mixing coconut milk and brown sugar in a hot caldron
Stir the mixture of rice and coconut milk until it cleaves
Share eating sticky rice cake with the family with blessing the whole year round

    such an interesting visit to a culture not my own! It seems all cultures have a sweet "unhealthy" but filling (both of stomach & love) dish, a mainstay of the poorer families. My mom used to eat bread & butter with sugar sprinkled on the butter & bread with a mayonaise and pickle spread on it with no meat on either...and be content, happy...for they had no more to put on the bread...Light & Love

    enjoyed--sounds sort of like rice crispy snacks. It takes alot of muscle to stir them.
