Nasi Lemak is my all time favorite Malaysian food. I can eat this dish every day. Here’s what I usually have in my Nasi Lemak: coconut rice, achar, curry chicken with okra, cucumber, cashew nut, shrimp sambal, egg, ikan bilis.

Traditionally, Nasi Lemak is served with salted peanuts with skin still in-tact. When Mom visited us last, she suggested using cashew nut. That is the beauty of this dish, you can compliment with any other side dishes. Another example is to substitute, curry chicken with deep fried belachan chicken or even beef rendang. How about adding satay with Nasi Lemak? The different combination is endless. Ultimately, what makes Nasi Lemak is the rice itself; Cooked fragrant rice mix with coconut milk.

I just found out my youngest sister is a fan of Rasa Malaysia. After I dropped by her fan’s blog, I understand why.  So, instead of describing how I cook my Nasi Lemak. I will just link to Rasa Malaysia‘s version.

Now I would like to tag the following 5 bloggers (in alphabetical order): –
