Nasi Lemak is a Malay dish that has claimed the unofficial mantle of Malaysia's national dish. This fragrant rice dish is typically eaten for breakfast in Malaysia (as well as Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia), but we don't see why you can't eat it any time of the day.
The centrepiece of the Nasi Lemak is the fragrant cooked with coconut milk and pandan leaves. This is served with spicy sambal, crispy fried anchovies, peanuts, boiled egg, cucumber, and usually with some rendang, seafood, curry or fried chicken.
