Title: Ketupat recipe from A Taste of Asia.
Post by: LizzieM on November 25, 2018, 09:34:37 pm
I've recently made this ketupat from the "Taste of Asia " cookbook & it didn't really work at all. The rice is coarsely ground, then cooked with 1 litre of water as you would whole rice. The water & steam didn't seem to penetrate the rice & therefore it remained raw even though I cooked it much longer than the recipe stated. Has anyone else had this problem? Should I grind less? Or maybe put more than the litre of water.

Thanks for your help thermomixers.

I had a quick look for the recipe in my first edition of that book Lizzie but itís not under K.
The only thing I can think of is to stir it with the Thermomix spatula during the cooking. I do that when steaming whole rice too to make sure the heat is evenly distributed.  No-one has posted a review on this recipe.

Sorry I can't offer any advice. I don't have that book, and have never done anything similar.
 Just a thought though, did you have the heat on for the cooking. I know sometimes I do that and just programme the temperature and forget that you must programme time as well or the machine won't heat.
