SELINGAN : Nasik Dagae Dalae Klosong

Kelantanese Nasik Dagae : A dish made from semi polished rice & glutinous rice mix, soaked in coconut milk and steamed, often served with sliced hard boiled egg and Bonito curry.

( Just a " selingan " or filler entry )

Nowadays, most Nasi Dagae takeaways are wrapped in paper, often brown in colour, lined with a thin piece of plastic on one surface.

However the traditional style is always by having it wrapped in banana leaves ( of larger and tougher leafed variant, Pisae Ggalor, which are first lightly withered over fire for better handling ) then shaped into a cone ( a Klosong ) before sealing it with a pair of toothpick sized stick ( actually, a lot shorter ) derived from dried coconut leaf bone. An art in itself.

Getting rarer these days.

No, not the Nasik Dagae, the old school wrapper I mean.
