Nasi lemak is an all time favourite dish at almost anytime of the day, a fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaves. For this recipe we made references to the Food Canon’s Nasi Lemak recipe. To us we there’s a few things we would expect in a good Nasi lemak other than the rice; firstly is the sambal chilli, as we all tend to take lots of it with the nasi lemak. Our version is on the sweet side as compared to the usual sambal.
Next we have the classic ikan kuning – we prefer it to be crispy on the outside yet not dry on the inside. Also not to forget our favourite coconut cream batter deep fried chicken wings! We recommend two for every serving even though it’s a bit too much simply because it’s really good and shiok!
Be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, Nasi Lemak is always one of our favourites, and we hope this recipe will be one of yours too.
