Nasi Lemak is the most popular dish among Malaysian. It can be serve anytime but commonly Malaysian eat Nasi Lemak for breakfast. Nasi Lemak also consider as national dish. So what do think why Nasi Lemak so special in Malaysia?


Originally Nasi Lemak is serve with banana leave to keep it aroma and taste. Nasi Lemak is cooked with coconut milk and “pandan” leave that make nice aroma and good taste. Nasi Lemak is not complete without hot and spicy souce called as “sambal” and usually includes various garnishes, including fresh cucumber slices, small fried anchovies “ikan bilis:, roasted peanuts, and hard-boiled or fried egg.


Even though Nasi Lemak very popular, some are argue that Nasi Lemak is not an healthy food due to contain a lot of calories which is same as four hamburger. So, some of Malaysian innovate Nasi Lemak to be more healthier and less calories. They changed from using coconut milk to less cholesterol milk. Indeed, the taste might be slightly different from original Nasi Lemak, but still in good taste!!
