Project Rural Mini Library-Part5 Pitcher dumpling class

Location : Kampung Sapit, Padawan District, Kuching Division, Sarawak, Malaysia.

Two major concerns that we had in coordinating with KAMI in this project were the food menu and activity where our Semenanjung volunteers could pick up a local skill. We would like to think we did quite well in the food avenue making sure no repeat of dishes unless requested upon. Except for the ‘over tough’ or undercooked kampung chicken ‘kacangma’ dish, the rest was okay. Next time we know that in order to cook kampung chicken we will have to marinate it with papaya leave juice to tenderize it, something I picked up a long time ago while traveling in Bario but forgot to put to good use in Sapit. Apologies guys for making you chewed so hard.

They have learnt during the 2014 trip how to cook ‘pansuh’ or bamboo chicken as well as Sarawak Laksa. So at Sapit, we did something different as our host Begus is an expert in cooking sticky rice in pitcher plant. We decided to call it ‘pitcher dumpling’. exotic food, sticky rice, authentic, Kampung Sapit, village, Padawan, Kuching, Malaysia, volunteer, native, dayak bidayuh, tribal, tribe, Non Profit Organization, 沙捞越美食The pitcher plants had to be harvested a day earlier and soaked overnight in clean water. Freshly grated coconut to be made into milk and mixed with a bit of salt for better aroma although dried coconut powder may be used. Raw peanuts and freshly cut pandan leaves. Rice had to be soaked overnight for speedy cooking which is usually about 45min. See photos for illustration & check out video above.  Next…..picnic lunch at Sapit river.
