Nasi lemak is very delicious, but it’s not a healthy food. As a nasi lemak fans, I have been thinking for a while to cook my own fragrant rice set to replace my favourite nasi lemak. Tada….here it is, quite successful, right?
With all the nasi lemak ingredients like asam prawns, deep fried crispy anchovies, baked ground nuts, fresh cucumber slices, hard boiled eggs (omega-3), and most importantly the sambal, my fragrant rice taste marvelous. Hehe
Fragrant rice (for 4 persons):
2 and a half cup of rice
1 teaspoon of salt
6 pandan leaves, tie into 3 knots with 2 pandan leaves each
4 thin slices of ginger
Sambal paste consists of onions, belacan, fresh red chilies, dried chilies, garlics, lemon grass - blended and saute with sliced onions and added with tamarind juice, a pitch of salt & sugar, and Maggie anchovy stock granules.
