Chicken Rice Porridge

There are times when I feel like I've had too much of everything. I just badly need something simple, healthy & wholesome, and I almost always resort to boiling some rice porridge with the goodness of chicken bones and grated carrots. My favourite touch to the bubur is to sprinkle fresh green peppercorns from my garden. It gave a tangy, pungent, fresh peppery taste. Gorgeous!

Gulai Ikan Tongkol (Tuna Curry)

You couldn't possibly eat Nasi Dagang with anything but Gulai Ikan Tongkol. Due to its firm meat, cooking this fish requires stronger flavoured roots & spices to enable it to penetrate the meat. The result is a strong but flavourful gravy that coats this fish which is the only acceptable dish to enjoy with Nasi Dagang.

Nasi Dagang

Nasi Dagang has always been one of my favourite breakfast, tracing its origin from Terengganu & Kelantan. The combination of glutinous rice & the brown rice (beras nasi dagang) produces a gorgeous fine, almost sticky rich texture - also probably due to the coconut milk it's cooked in. Perfectly suited with Tuna Curry, translated in Malay as Gulai Ikan Tongkol. Not a terribly easy dish to cook but certainly worth every effort.

Nasi Minyak

My family loves flavoured rice much more than plain white rice. It could be due to our Johorean upbringing or simply because it's such a treat to have Beriani Gam, Nasi Tomato, Nasi Dhal or Nasi Minyak. These varieties of rice are normally eaten during festivities. So, my home seems like we have special occasions every week, as that's how often we have these flavoured rice!

Nasi Dhal Ayah

My father loves Fridays! He always insisted everyone be home for our Friday long lunches before prayers. This day every week, we are treated with every variety of rice dishes you could imagine! Nasi Bokhari, Nasi Tomato, Nasi Minyak, Nasi Beriani Gam and the list goes on. Nasi Dhal is one of the rice dishes that we have, and apart from Beriani Gam, it is my favourite rice dish!
