ketupat

Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri

Mohon Maaf Lahir Bathin

 

It is the end of Ramadan so Muslims all over the world are breaking the fast. A symbolic treat offered all throughout Indonesia is rice cooked in packets made from fresh coconut leaves called ketupat.

 

These are taken from Bali, where the ketupat are often used in ceremonial Hindu offerings. The Philippines has its own version. In Cebu, it is called puso.
