Everyone must know about corn or we call as jagung in bahasa Indonesia. I made this for my entry to participate at MFM #8, hosted by Haley. With a theme corn, I think it should be easy for everyone.

This dish is wrapped in banana leaves with tum technique. Tum is an Indonesian technique term for wrapping banana leaves. Fold each of the open ends into the middle and pin into a parcel with a sliver of bamboo or cocktail sticks. It will be easier to explain with pictures. If you have a cookbook of The Best of Indonesian Desserts, just open up page 29 to see the pictures.
