Pulot Panggang-Glutinous Rice Rolls With Spicy Coconut


These savory snacks are called Pulot Panggang, another popular street food in Malaysia. It’s made of steamed glutinous rice with a mild spicy coconut filling in the center. All wrapped with banana leaves, they are then slowly grilled to get all that wonderful flavors. This recipe does call for some patience and a bit of work; but, I think it’s well worth it. I used a sushi contraption, as shown below, to make it easier and less tedious to roll up the rice. Try it.

250 ml Coconut Milk
¾ tsp Sea Salt
3 Pandan Leaves, knotted

Filling
4 Tbsp Dried Prawns, soaked and pounded

1 Tbsp Sugar

Sambal Paste
15 Dried Chilies
½ tsp Ground Turmeric
2 (35 g) Red Chilies

2 stalks Lemongrass

20 – 25 pcs (12 x 16 cm) Banana Leaves, scalded and cleaned

Method

Combine glutinous rice, coconut milk, salt and Pandan leaves. Steam over high heat for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the rice are fully cooked.

Prepare the filling: Heat oil and fry the sambal until fragrant. Add the dried prawns and continue to cook for about 5 minutes and mix in the desiccated coconut. Cook until the filling mixtures are dry but still moist and season with sugar and salt. Dish out and set aside to cool.

To assemble the rice rolls: Place 2 to 3 Tbsp of Glutinous rice onto the banana leaf. Spread the rice and press well to a rectangle.

Add the filling along the middle of the rice and roll from one side to form a cylindrical shape.

Secure both side with toothpick or using a staple.

Grill the rice rolls on a low heat for about 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
