It is a great pleasure to dig-in and learn to cook many local foods which almost forgotten.
This one is Palem, a kind of finger-food which is made of a mix of grated coconut, minced shrimps with spicy flavour, and wrapped with Dagdag leaves (a type of edible leaves that farmers usually feed their cattle with).
I found this food at a small food stall at Sangsit Village - North Bali, only 20 minutes away from #pengalamanrasa.
At Pengalaman Rasa, I recreate it by using minced pork meat to mix with grated coconut and the spices.
I also swap the Dagdag leaves with Long Pepper's leaves.
It became smaller in size, but easier to bite into.
It was a great pleasure to host dinner for our guests from Departemen Luar Negeri (Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs), Bali Tourism Board, Badan Promosi Pariwisata Daerah Bali, also Journalists from Panama, Costa Rica, Cuba and Argentina.
Thank you for coming to visit us all the way to North Bali.
