Cut up the fresh ginger and add to the pot with the salt. Continue to boil the palm sugar until it turns a golden syrup color. Then add the coconut milk. Add the banana slices and simmer until cooked. Ladle into serving bowls while hot and sprinkle with some of the grated coconut. Serves 4–6. 55 56 C h a p t e r Th r e e Capung Goreng (Fried Dragonfly) Dragonflies are a very traditional, popular, age-old rural village food in Bali. Catching dragonflies in the rice fields as a boy is a cherished childhood memory for many Balinese men.

Producing steamed white rice (nasi kukus) is a laborious multi-step process in Bali where rice perfection is de rigueur. It employs an ingenious three-tiered rice steamer known as a dangdang, kukusan or kekeban. This is an hourglass-shaped gray sheet iron or aluminum pot designed by the Balinese to reflect the symbolic shape of the beloved rice goddess, Dewi Sri. The dangdang is filled up to the waist with water and placed on top of an iron brazier (kran). A large, loosely plaited, cone-shaped bamboo steamer called a kukusan or pengukusan fits like a funnel down into the mouth of the dangdang.

As the meat cooks, it becomes “melting soft” because the water inside cannot escape. This is ancient pressure-cooking, Balinese village style! The cooking time depends on the fire. If the fire is good, one hour is enough, though typical cooking time using a bungbung is one to two hours. The Balinese will only do this for special occasions like Galungan or Kuningan when they have a lot of meat. The bungbung is not used for daily cooking as people are too busy and the method is complicated. Nasi (steamed rice) campur (mixture) is the basic thrice daily meal on Bali.
