Nasi Lemak

I have helped to make Nasi Lemak on numerous occasions at Hari Raya. Nasi Lemak is a Malaysian dish that has spicy sambal, hard-boiled egg, coconut rice, pandan leaf, nuts, dried anchovies. Some Nasi Lemak also includes fried chicken or curry.

You can buy the dried anchovies from many Asian grocery stores

You can make the sambal the day before. What we would do is slice the chili and then pickle it until soft. But if you are lazy you can also buy it from Asian supermarkets.

The nuts are just your roasted peanuts.

Then you cook your rice and your egg.

Enjoy your nasi lemak!
