How to Make Squid Ketupat – Travel Diary Kelantan – Part 8

Recipes for Ketupat Sotong (Squid Stuffed with Glutinous Rice) and Kerabu Pucuk Nipah (Palm Shoots Salad) from Perdana Resort, Kota Bharu

We showed up at Perdana Resort, a beachside property, for the next two cooking demonstrations – and found another extravagant banquet had been prepared for us that included Kelantan’s very unique laksa (I will have to separately share a recipe for this another time).
