Taking some short break from cooking, but my mind is still brainstorming for menu to cook for the coming week. Yay!!! it is public holiday, so I have more time to spend on cooking. This time, cooking has become a harder thing because we now have additional one person in our household. So I am now catering for four people including myself.

After a long thought, I decided to cook nasi lemak. So stay tuned for the recipe.

Nasi Lemak

Coconut Rice


  • 3 cups of jasmine rice
  • 1 cup of basmati rice
  • 300ml of coconut milk
  • water
  • 3 tsp of salt
  • 4-5 slices of ginger
  • 3 pandan leaves


  1. Mix and wash jasmine rice and basmati rice
  2. Add in all other ingredients
  3. Stir with spatula until it is properly mixed
  4. Place in rice cooker and cook it

Side Dishes:-

  • Fried anchovies
  • Roasted Peanuts
  • Sliced Cucumber
  • Fried Egg (can be replaced by hard boiled egg)
  • Pappadams
  • Sambal (Chilli Paste)

The side dishes are optional, but the sambal is a must if you want a more authentic feel of nasi lemak. This time, I do not put fried egg, sliced cucumber and pappadams. Instead, I spend some time frying the anchovies and roasting the peanut. Make sure you do not roast your peanut too long, as it may not be crisp. If you fry your anchovies and roast your peanuts the day/night before, make sure your store them in an air-tight container to keep the crispiness.
