Here are some photos I snapped these few days. The above is a kolam made of coloured rice grains.
Kolam is an auspicious art of decorating courtyards and pooja rooms/prayer halls in South India drawn mainly by women and girls. Some women use rice flour to draw a kolam, which is the traditional medium to be used while others use sandstone or limestone powder.
Generally, a kolam is drawn with bare fingers using predetermined dots. The dots are either connected together to make a pattern or loops are drawn encircling the dots to complete a design
This is the lemang, a speciality for Hari Raya. Rows and rows of these stalls were located along the Karak Highway. A tube is sold at RM5. It is yummy delicious rice cooked with coconut milk, wrapped with banana leaves and slowly bake over charcoal or wood fire in a bamboo tube.
Lemang is best serve with serunding or rendang. I believe all our Muslim friends are eating lemang right now?
