Nasi Impit or better known as Ketupat tradionally has their unique taste even though its just plain rice.  Nasi Impit can be served with sayur lodeh (Lontong gravy), soto ayam, rendang or dip with kuah satay (peanut sauce).

I bought Instant Ketupat Rice from grocery shop and just follow the instructions. Inside the pouch have two pouches stuff with uncooked rice.  Just boil it the hot water with the lid closed.  I cooked the rice for 1  1/2 hour in the presure cooker in slow fire. Once done, remove the pouches from the stove and let it cool at least 3 hour before serve. Cut pressed rice cake into cubes to serve.
