  1. When I was a child we lived in Sumatra. Our family cook made mie goreng with LOTS of ginger. Is there a special recipe? And one more thing we went to a wedding and one of the foods was sticky rice cooked in a banana peel. There was a sweet brown something inside. Do you have any ideas about these two recipes.
