Jump, Stab....(ouch!!)

This dessert, Lompat Tikam, is a recent favourite of mine. Literally translated to mean Jump Stab...

I was told by our Ambassador that in the years gone by, this dessert was usually served after a silat match.....hence the name....

I was also told by my friend, Puan Husniah, a Kelantanese, that back in her hometown, where this dish originates, the glutinous rice is usually coloured red. Now, wouldn't that make a great Xmas dessert.

Lompat Tikam

Black glutinous rice, soaked overnight
Replace the water and add a little salt.
Boiled as you would with rice and once it's cooked, press into a lightly oiled dish.

Pandan top

2 large bunch of pandan leaves, blended with water to get about 5 1/2 cup of pandan juice
1 cup rice flour
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp kapur sireh
a pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients together and simmer over gentle heat until thickened.
Pour over compressed glutinous rice.

Coconut cream

2 cups coconut milk
1 1/2 cup water
2 tbsp rice flour
salt and sugar

Mix all the ingredients and cook over low heat until thickened. Leave it to cool.

To serve Lompat Tikam, scoop a generous amount of glutinous rice and pandan combo and smother it with coconut cream and the treacle-lushness of brown sugar syrup.

MamaFaMi -- the original lompat tikam guna pulut dyed in red colouring....this recipe I got from pakar masak the Hague, Liya and Kak Noriah actually guna a combo of pulut and pulut hitam to the ratio of 2:1, but as usual, me, trying to be "clever" lah use 100% pulut hitam...

Rani -- yang ni pasti tak kojol....

Lee Lin -- betoi jugak.....since the "skin" is green, kita kena tukaq nama jadi Lompat Tikam Shrek....

Wiz -- timakacih....we all need a little pixie dust now and again....Btw, you're too kind, I'm no beauty.... methinks booty is more apt (dang, those middle eastern gene!!!)

Cek De Sam -- Happy New Year to you and your family!!

Dewi -- it's simple,'s too short...
Happy New Year to you, too!!
