Growing up, my grandma cook this often as appetizer. On the past, I tried cooking with canned corn, using the usual "approximate" recipe and it didn't turn out so well. I am tempted to cook this again after seeing my friend's picture of the dish on Instagram and she told me she is using real fresh corn so I gave this dish another try. So much better than my previous attempts but still didn't

I fell in love with Siomay Jambi when my mother in law first brought it from Jambi, a small town in Indonesia where hubby grew up. The inside is mainly veggies and ground pork with little bit flour, which make it less filling than the more popular Siomay Bandung.  First cut up the veggies: carrots, jicama, bamboo shoots, mushroom.  Cook the inside Place about one tablespoon
