Tape Ketan & Uli

tape ketan item uli


This man is selling Tape Ketan and Uli.

Tape Ketan is sweet fermented black glutinous rice and the Uli is the white glutinous rice cooked with coconut milk and salt then wrapped into banana leaves.

According to the seller man, the tape ketan will turn into alcohol after 2 days. Hence, it need to be eaten directly.

  46. I've never seen the sweet black glutinous rice before, though I've had white and green (young rice) versions in Vietnam, both sweet and savory. They're called xoi, and they're a favorite snack of mine. Of course, they're different from these, but they're often wrapped in banana leaves, too. Ah, I'd love to try these!

    ReplyDelete
  47. sapuche: Green young rice? That's sounds interesting. You should visit Indonesia someday ;)

    ReplyDelete
  48. i guess tape is tapai here in malaysia. i havent tried it before but i'm sure it's delicious. i've tried black glutinous porridge though. ;D

    ReplyDelete
  49. nic: Hahaha... the tape ketan tasted completely different than the black glutinous porridge :) If you like sake, then I think you will like tape ketan after it turned to alcohol.

    ReplyDelete
  50. "the tape ketan will turn into alcohol after 2 days. Hence, it need to be eaten directly.."

    hmm... i think I'd rather wait the two days.. :P hehe

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thank you for sharing Selba. You are my new stop and visit blog. Always something interesting here. I even just enjoy the street pictures. It's nice to see outside my little world. I so wish I could go there and try some street food.

  55. for Malaysian bloggers
    if you wanna to try this thing just go to your nearest 'pasar malam' place
    and go to malay stall where they sell kuih.
    some of them sell 'TAPAI' and you can buy it....
    after that how many day you can leave it before you can eat it.

    ReplyDelete
  56. They both look very exotic. I am learning quite a bit about Asian foods. Thanks for sharing.
