These Pulut Panggang (grilled glutinous rice wrapped in Banana leaves) are home made ones and bought from a Nyonya lady in Malacca. Basically it is glutinous rice steamed and cooked with coconut milk and salt, rolled it with ingredients like grated white coconut, minced dried shrimps, chili paste and palm sugar, then wrapped with a banana leave (both ends stapled) and grilled until aromatic.

The aromatic Pulut Panggang was firm and the fillings were filled with a bit of everything to tantalize your taste buds.

These are local understated snacks , very tasty and cheap !

Would have been better if they had not used the dangerous metallic staples tho , but say the normal coconut leaf veins. convenience ?

yes that's right!

Staples! I'd never have thought it! Brilliant!

Sounds wonderful, reminds me of tamales. They aren't remotely similar, of course, except in shape.
