I love Nasi Lemak but good Nasi Lemak is hard to find in Manila. My version is by no means authentic but it satisfies my craving. If you want to try making it at home, here's how.
shrimps, shelled and deveined
sambal belachan / I used this
rice cooked with coconut milk or you can cook the rice with some pandan leaves
fried tofu cubes
(I didn't have these two ingredients when I made this so I used whatever is in the fridge)
kangkong which I cooked with some oyster sauce and garlic
dilis (if you have)
mung bean sprouts (optional) I wanted to add some more crunch to my dish
Let's do this!
Marinate the prawns in a little bit of sambal (depending on how spicy you want your dish to be) and season with salt. Let this marinate for 20 minutes.
Cook the rice. Just substitute one cup of coconut milk for 1 cup of water. For example, if you cook with 2 cups water, make it 1 cup coconut milk and 1 cup water.
