Madam Tan's Nasi Lemak

Jackie from Yummy Stuff Goes Here was asking for a guest blog so I shamelessly offered to write about Madam Tan’s Nasi Lemak. 

The Madam Tan's method entails a lot of work but it is well worth it because you get to have the fluffy yummy nasi lemak rice to go with your curry chicken, egg and chilli. I developed this Nasi Lemak recipe after loads of research and served many a satisfied customer a delicious rich fluffy plate of Nasi Lemak.

You will need the following:

Old fashioned steamer
Muslin cloth
Large Bowl

7 cups of rice
500 g of coconut milk
4 cups of water
2 tsp of salt
1 large Spanish onion (finely sliced)
2 slices of ginger
Pandan leaves tied into a knot

Fill the bottom of the steamer with water and tie the muslin cloth across the steamer basket so that the rice doesn’t fall through the large holes. If you have a steamer which has small holes, then there is no need for the muslin cloth.

Muslin cloth with pandan leaves
Soak the 7 cups of rice for at least 2 hours and then place rice into the steamer with the sliced onion, pandan leaves and ginger. Steam the rice at high heat for 30 mins or until rice turns opaque, making sure to stir the rice from time to time. Prepare the coconut mixture by mixing the coconut milk with the water and salt. When rice is cooked, place into the coconut milk mixture and let soak for 30 mins.

Steaming the rice
Place the rice into the steamer once again and steam for another 40 mins. From time to time, stir the rice to ensure even cooking.

And there you have it......Madam Tan’s Nasi Lemak. Enjoy!
