Detailed Information

While wajid can be found anywhere in Brunei, wajid Temburong is a well-sought after delicacy. A conventional wajid recipe calls for glutinous sticky rice, but in Temburong, locals use beras Jawa which is difficult to find elsewhere, hence it is also known as wajid Jawa. The texture of wajid Temburong is less sticky and less chewy. The dark brown colour is due to coconut milk and sugar cooked to a dark caramel consistency before it is mixed with the rice. It is neatly wrapped with daun nyirik (phyrinium leaves) and secured with a little skewer obtained from coconut leaves.
