Usually cut into diamonds and allowed to cool, these wonderful creamy rice cakes are beautiful with ripe banana and any spicy sambal. In Sri Lanka, they are served on auspicious occasions such as New Year, and every full moon, known as a poya day, when key events in Buddhism are honoured — but they are also eaten at other times because they taste so good. My dad used to love them with green mung beans in them, too.
