Today, Zila brought a container-full of lemper, a Jawa dish made of glutinous rice.  It is filled with serunding udang ( prawn floss ), flavored only with jintan putih ( cumin, powdered seeds of Cuminum cyminum ) and serbuk lada hitam ( black pepper powder, Piper nigrum ), wrapped in banana leaf. 

The taste is somehow similar to a close variant, pulut panggang ( grilled glutinous rice ), which is cylindrical, 3cm Æ x 10cm length.  Lemper is bite-size, cubical, about 4cm length x 4cm width x 2.5cm height, and is cooked in boiled water.
