“Today I am delighted to have you join me in cooking Nagasari, a famous traditional Indonesian cake. Nagasari is popular in the district of Indramayu in West Java.” “Before we start cooking, let me begin by introducing the ingredients we need to make Nagasari. Firstly, we need pandan leaves. Then we also need ripe bananas, 500 milliliters of coconut milk, 100 grams of rice flour, 60 grams of sugar, 10 grams of tapioca flour, and half a teaspoon of salt. And we also need banana leaves for wrapping later.”

“Now we will start preparing the mixture. First, we pour 500 milliliters of coconut milk into a bowl. Then we add in 100 grams of rice flour. Next, we add 60 grams of sugar, 10 grams of tapioca flour, and half a teaspoon of salt. Then we will mix all the ingredients together. We stir until the ingredients are well mixed. For viewers who may have difficulty finding banana leaves, you can use any kind of cake mold that you have at home. First of all, we will put one slice of banana into the cake mold. Then we will scoop the mixture into it.”

“I will now show you how to wrap the Nagasari. First of all, we take one piece of banana leaf with the lighter colored side facing upwards. Then we scoop approximately one spoonful of the mixture. Top the mixture with a slice of banana. We wrap the Nagasari like this. Fold the sides of the leaf towards the center. Gently press to flatten the mixture and then fold the upper and lower sections of the folded banana leaf downwards. So, these are parcels of the mixture already wrapped in banana leaves. After this, we will steam them.” “We place the steamer basket over the boiling water and cook the mixture for about 20 minutes.”

“Wow, it looks very appealing. This is traditional Indonesian vegan Nagasari! All right viewers, this is the Nagasari that we made. Now let's try it. It’s really delicious. Nagasari is also commonly enjoyed with a cup of tea. It’s a really great combination. Nagasari can be made effortlessly, don’t you agree? All you need is a few ingredients and you are almost ready to serve this delicious cake.”
