Lontong or rice cake is an Indonesian food made of rice wrapped in banana leaves and boiled in water for several hours. Because it’s boiled in banana leaves, rice cake can be green colored on the outside, while the inside is white. And, because it’s boiled long enough, the taste becomes much more subtle and softer than ordinary rice.
Lontong mostly found in various regions in Indonesia as an alternative to white rice meals. It is usually served with satay, salad, or curry goat.
