Nasi lemak is the most popular food in Malaysia. Even Chinese and Indian love to eat it. At its very basic, Nasi Lemak is a plate of white rice cooked in coconut milk. Beside it is the ‘sambal’ a chili paste mixed of ‘ikan bilis’. Beside that there is a egg served, either boiled or fried with cucumber slices and peanuts. Finally you can add fried chicken or beef in the nasi lemak. Simply delicious, Nasi Lemak is eaten throughout the day for breakfast, lunch, dinner or super. The meaning of its name happens to be ‘Fat Rice’ in Malay, a humorous of its calorie rich nature.
