Ketupat with Crackers AND Red Bean Soup
http://www.thefoodpornographer.com/2006/12/22/satay-night-the-savoury/It is traditional to serve ketupat (rice cakes) with satay. On this occasion the rice cakes were actually instant ones from a packet (the green packet in the photo). You boil the packets of rice cake mix (top right in the photo) for 60-90 minutes – the individual plastic packets are heatproof so you chuck them straight into the pan. They puff up inside those special plastic packets (bottom right in the photo) as they boil. Then it’s up to you to just remove the plastic and carve the rice into smaller cubes.
