I was driven to distraction all morning, thinking of my favourite breakfast food in Singapore. So I decided to make it for myself. And it was finger-lickin good.
Boil 1 cup of rice with 1.5 cups of coconut milk in the rice cooker
Sambal (chilli paste)
1/2 cup dried chillies
1/2 red onion
1 tbs tamarind paste
2 tbs sugar
1. Pound dried chillies and onion with a mortar and pestle.
2. Heat oil and fry the paste.
3. Mix tamarind with 1/4 cup water, remove the seeds and add to the frying paste.
4. Add 2 tbs of sugar.
5. Remove and serve.
I added fried anchovies and a boiled egg to the nasi lemak. You can also add fried fish, cucumbers or fried chicken- whatever you prefer.
