Malaysia’s Iconic Food - The Nasi Lemak

Nasi Lemak is one of the most common dish to be associated with Malaysians to date. This is also contributed to the fact that, Malaysians have now considered the rice dish called Nasi Lemak is the official delicacy of Malaysia. What makes this dish unique is the method of cooking, whereby the rice is cooked with coconut milk infused with Pandan Leaf, which results in a very rich and fragrant rice. Side dishes served consist of crispy fried Anchovies, ground peanuts, hard boil egg, cucumber slices and of course the creme-de-la-creme, sambal!

Nasi Lemak literally means Oily or Fatty Rice. It is widely eaten in Malaysia not only as a breakfast dish, but also for lunch, dinner, brunch, supper, basically any other time of the day! This is one of the contributing factor to why the Nasi Lemak is available at almost every corner of this country, throughout the day.
