Ketan Bakar Lembang

Ketan Bakar Lembang is a tasty little dish made of sticky rice (ketan). The rice is cooked, shaped like a block, barbecued, and served with peanut sauce, oncom souce, and/or sarundeng (toasted and spiced grated coconut).

Because it is barbecued, the rice is crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside. Eaten with peanut and/or oncom souce, it's yummy!

The word Lembang in the name of this dish is the name of a small high land town about 12 kilometers north of Bandung where this dish is said to have originated from.

I'd definitely give it a try! I had "Mochi" in Japan which was grilled and had a little sauce with it, too.

That sounds very very good. I'm going to look for a recipe, but I'm sure it tastes better from the street vendor!
