We are ready to make our signature dish for the Chinese New Year: the sweetly, delicious pungat. We've almost finished buying all the ingredients except the coconut milk which must be bought fresh. None of those packaged, processed santan stuff that you may find on the supermarket shelves.
So there you are ... nothing less than the King of bananas (pisang raja), yam and four types of tubers to impart variety and natural colour to the pungat. All these will be sliced into pieces and then go into the pot. Mmm...can't wait!
