Yeay it’s Friday again, somehow this week pass so quickly and I am so happy that I have time to make bento for today #partyforfriday bento.
Today lunch was a simple steam rice sprinkled with Shichimi togarashi and decorated with steamed edamame and purple sticky rice/glutinous rice cake. I bought those rice cake from nearby cake shop (in Indonesia it’s called : Pulut Tai Tai), the purple color of the rice was using the coloring from “Telang” flower (don’t ask me the name in English I am totally clueless) . This Pulut Tai Tai is a traditional cake to be enjoy with Kaya sauce. I believe the dish was a mixture of Chinese and Malay culture and this type of dish can be found in neighborhood countries such as Singapore and Malaysia.
Anyway back to the bento, the rest of what’s in the box : 2 fish shape grilled sausages , 2 sotong /octopus balls (cooked in chicken stock for some flavoring and to get rid of the fishy smell), few cherry tomatoes.
Happy Friday all!
