Nasi Lemak


It was one of those days again---I was craving for something hot and spicy.  I wanted a bowl of hot Laksa but Secret Recipe's really large bowl made me change my mind.   Nasi Lemak was the next best option, and the spicy sambal didn't disappoint. 

Nasi Lemak is a Malaysian dish of fragrant rice cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf.  My Nasi Lemak was served with chicken curry, slices of boiled egg and cucumber, roasted peanuts, fried anchovies and spicy sambal.  This is more of a Malaysian Indian style because of the curry.  It was lip smackin' good!

Luna, what a coincidence! hahaha.
When I went to Secret Recipe my mind was all set for curry mee. I narrowly drowned on the very generous serving. But look at that plate of yours - the curry sauce is just so lip-smackingly inviting.Next time I'm going to try the nasi dishes :) Have a great weekend.

After spending years living in Southeast Asia I consider nasi lemak as comfort food. Love this!

I haven't tried this dish before, but I've eaten at Nasi Lemak restaurant at Robinsons Galleria. Next time we visit that resto, I'll make sure we order Nasi Lemak, too.
