Nothing like good ole comfort food as an accompaniment to a glorious weekend at home. Similarly, nothing I enjoy more than being able to serve up some hearty and good old fashioned Nasi Lemak in the name of gastronomical pleasure.
It’s all in the sambal and the fragrance of the rice, they say. So wise, and so true.
While it can be quite a challenge to control the spiciness of the chillies, it now is looking like I may have just perfected the taste of my sambal! I have to admit that I’m also ecstatically elated of being able to use the freshly grown pandan leaves right from our own very balcony for the rice. It is such a cool concept to be able to grow your own herbs for immediate usage as and when you need it, I tell you.
I like my Nasi Lemak to be decadent by adding more sides dish such as fried fish, fried chicken (I have to add chicken because of Silver Bullet’s resistance to seafood), fried omelet, boiled quail eggs, as well as fried ikan bilis (anchovies). With the coconut rice and yummy sambal in tow, I assure you that it could not have been a more satisfying meal!
