Delicious Nasi Lemak
Nasi lemak is undoubtedly one of the favourite staple food among locals and tourists alike. It used to be a popular breakfast dish but these days, it is now available almost round-the-clock.
There are many versions available but I prefer the basic ones which involves rice cooked in coconut milk, served with crispy, deep fried anchovies, fried peanuts, a wedge of hard-boiled egg, cucumber slices and of course, the tasty sambal.
Perhaps one of the best that has come my way would be the outlet at Jalan Raja Uda, Butterworth. It's a simple meal, but the chef’s skilful cooking methods truly enhanced the flavours to create a sinfully delicious dish. With the fragrant aromatic of screwpine leaves and the right blend of spices, every spoonful was a delight. Believe me, my kids could have platefuls of this tantalizing dish. Good nasi lemak is hard to come by these days and I believe it does not solely lie in the ingredients but in the cooking tips and tricks as well.
Hungry now? I am. Enjoy your breakfast this morning.
