In her open-air Sumbanese kitchen, Fransiska Lali shares with me her children’s favourite dish, creamed corn with coconut milk. Rooster cries pierce the air as we cook. ‘We call their sound kukuruyuk-kukuruyuk, and we use the same word for women who talk too much!’ she laughs warmly. The browned butter is Fransiska’s delightful addition to this Sumba comfort food.
