Lontong Cap Goh Meh

Chap Goh Meh festival already passed 3 days but mom celebrated with her friends today during lunch time. They ate Lontong Chap Goh Meh which is the Chinese Indonesian tradition.
Here in Indonesia, the tradition of eating Tang Yuan (dessert of boiled glutinous rice drink with sweetened soup) has been replaced by Lontong Chap Goh Meh.

Lontong: Roll rice (steamed wrap rice in the banana leaves)

Eaten with vegetable cooked with coconout milk, meat, chilly, etc.

Chap Goh Meh is the fifteenth and final day of the Lunar New Year period as celebrated by Chinese migrant communities. The term is from the Hokkien dialect and literally means the fifteenth day of the first month – source: Wikipedia.
