Rice in pitcher plant

Among the Bidayuhs of Kuching pitcher plants are used as wrappers for glutinous rice.

Like the one above which I bought for RM0.50 a piece at the Serikin tamu, the rice cooked in the pitcher plant is indeed very tasty and aromatic. However, to make it even more appetising , crushed peanuts and a flavoured paste is added in. Yummy, yummy ,I love it!.

Hmmmm ... sounds and looks delicious indeed. I love anything made of glutinous rice. I didn't know that pitcher plant flower (we call them "kantung semar" here) could be used for food wrapper. Thanks for sharing this unique thing, Encik Mahmud.
