The rich coconut sauce used here is the Indonesian Sambal Goreng Sauce. ‘Sweetcorn rice’ may not be immediately recognizable to Indonesians of a younger generation than mine, but for my sisters and me, who were children during the Japanese occupation and the years of revolution, it was a staple food when there was not enough rice by itself to go round. Sweetcorn and coconut were added simply to give bulk, but in fact they make rather a good combination and I am reintroducing this dish as a kind of new wave pilaf. The pork dumplings also contain several other interesting ingredients.
