Singapore Nasi Lemak
Nasi Lemak is a Malay dish where rice is cooked in coconut milk infused with pandan fragrance. Nasi Lemak is usually accompanied with fried ikan bilis, omelette egg and chicken wings or rendang along with sambal chili at the side.
It is actually interesting that a good plate of Nasi Lemak is usually determined by the sambal chilli that comes along at the side. If you are looking for a good recipe for the sweet sambal chilli for your nasi lemak you can check out our recipe post on how to make sambal chilli.
Nasi Lemak can be served any time of the day. Some people enjoy having it as a breakfast meal while some can even have it as a late night supper. Traditionally nasi lemak is wrapped in a banana leaf and it only comes with a piece of fried fish and a thin slice of omelette with some ikan billis and sambal at the side. Nowadays we can even find lobster grilled cheese Nasi Lemak selling at some stall. But if you ask me, my favorite would still be the old school nasi lemak!
