 egg,and vegetable oil until frothy and add orange juice, mix well. Sift in flour and orange zest, mix well set aside.

Lopes Pulut Hitam (Steamed Black Glutinous Rice with Palm Sugar Syrup)

Lopes Pulut Hitam (Steamed Black Glutinous Rice with Palm Sugar Syrup)

1/2 kg Black Glutinous rice, washed
2 cups of water
1 tsp air chang/air abu...... I'm not sure why it's called air (as in water) when it actually is clups of powder)
35 pieces of banana leaves cut into 5"x10" rectangle sizes, wilted briefly over flame
7 rafia strings cut into 2'5" lengths 
 Pour the water over the glutinous rice.
Sprinkle with air chang evenly over the rice.
Mix it in well until the air chang dilutes.
Put the rice aside & allow it to rest for about 1 5 minutes
Roll the banana leaf into a cone, shiny side out .
 Fill it in with 2 heaped tablespoons of rice. Press tightly until the rice is snug.
Flatten the cone to now look like a triangle.
 Flap the final opened side over, to complete the triangle & seal in the rice.
Arrange the filled triangle in stacks of three, with all the corners not in alignment.
Tie the stack of three triangles with one rafia string at each corner of the triangle.
This will keep the triangles tightly together when boiling it.
When all the triangles have been tied up into 7 batches, place it in boiling water.
Make sure the Lopes are submerged below the boiling water. Cover the lid.
Boil on medium heat for an hour.
Remove the Lopes form the water and place in onto a strainer. Allow it to cool.
When ready to consume, peel off the banana leaf, coat the Lopes with Grated Coconut & drizzle generously with Palm Syrup.
Oh!!! Yummy! I'm desiring it right now!

After about 10 minutes, pour the sago mixture gradually over the palm sugar syrup.
When it thickens, put aside until ready to serve with the Lopes. 
Ingredients for Grated Coconut:~ 
1 whole grated coconut (white only)
