This dish is one of my favourites dishes which my mom cooked for me whenever I got sore throat or stomach-ache (the non chili version) when I was a kid. This is typical Javanese dish. It has unique savoury taste and soft texture.
Mix well the ground beef with coconut milk and egg
Add the smooth ground spice mix
Add in salam leaves and kaffir-lime leaves
Take one table-spoon-full of the meat-mix and put it on a piece of banana leaf
Top the meat with the chili slice (if you want it to have a kick)
Wrap the meat-mix with the banana leaf and seal it with a tooth pick (some people even use stappler).
Arrange the wrapped meat- mix on a steamer and steam for about 30 minutes or until well cooked
You can substitute the banana leaves with aluminum foil for the wrap or use casserole dish as a container to steam the meat-mix
