Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice)

Nasi lemak...oh...its one of my favourite food during my childhood year and its still is.  Nasi lemak is rice cooked with coconut milk, slices of ginger, screwpine leaves and a pinch of salt.  Nasi lemak can also be found in economical rice stalls where one can choose between plain white rice or nasi lemak rice and then we can pick whatever side dishes we want. Traditionally, nasi lemak is served on a banana leaf laid on top of a plate or if its a take-away, its wrapped with banana leaves.  For my family, this delicious rice is accompanied with deep fried tumeric chicken, deep fried fishballs, sambal prawns, deep fried anchovies, 2 types of eggs - hard boiled and fried eggs, cucumber and tomato slices. Of course, you can add in any side dishes you want...its really up to you.

Here's a photo of our nasi lemak...

This is just so sedap....
