Barbie & Kuwait Tower Tumpeng

Tumpeng is an iconic Indonesia food and has certain traditional meanings. Want to know more about it...????? You can read the following NCC article here.
Although before, we can only see the traditional cone shape of this sticky yellow rice, but now we often see the other creations & shape of tumpeng, such as the Barbie & Kuwait Tower tumpeng below. Both tumpengs stand beautifully at Indonesian stall in English School Fahaheel, during International Day, April 2011.

I am using the sticky yellow rice recipe from NCC, while the others side dishes recipes using my own recipes which have not been standarized.

The sticky yellow rice recipe from Fatmah Bahalwan:
800 gram rice
200 gram white glutinous rice
1200 mL coconut milk
1 tablespoon finely grated turmeric
2 tablespoons salt
4 salam leaves
1 pandan leaves
2 stalks lemongrass
1 tablespoon lemon juice.

1. Mix the rice and glutinous rice, wash and drain well, steamed.
2. Meanwhile, mix turmeric and coconut milk, strain, discard turmeric pulp. Cook with the salam leaves, pandan and lemongrass. Add salt. Continue to cook until boiling. Turn off the heat.
3. Add the hot rice into the coconut milk and stir well. Allow until the coconut milk is absorbed. Pour the lime juice. Stir well.
4. Cook in steamer for 20 minutes, remove from heat.
5. Shape into Barbie skirt & Kuwait Tower. These tumpeng can spend as much as 2.5 recipe of the sticky yellow rice above.

For food hygiene, always use plastic gloves when shape the tumpeng and putting together the side dishes. And to prevent contamination during the transportation, tumpeng should be covered with plastic with enough hole to vent the food steam.
