What is Banana Leaf Rice?

If you visit Malaysia, you must try "banana leaf rice". First, you'll need to find a southern Indian restaurant or stall at a food court that offers "banana leaf rice".


When placing your order, you may be asked if you'd like a set, which is usually a vegetarian set (steamed white rice + 2-3 helpings of vegetables/vegetarian dishes), a chicken set, a fish set or a meat set (mutton).

In the photo above, I have chosen a large helping of leafy greens, half a salted egg and a delicious drumstick of curry chicken, all drenched with a ladle of dhall curry. Yum!!!

Ready to try banana leaf rice? Remember to wash your hands well because you'll enjoy it best eating with your fingers - if Jamie Oliver can do it, you can do it too :)
