Nasi Lemak & Sambal Ayam Serai


This was actually Friday's menu..as usual cant update cause was busy with the family...tried this nasi lemak with the Sambal Ayam Serai, I adjusted a bit by adding some sugar to it..thank you Love, for the recipe,I c&p it here ya..my periuk licin tau..haha..

Ingredients:-
4 cups of basmati rice-(4 cawan beras basmati)
1 box of coconut milk(200mls) + 1 box of water (from the coconut ilk box)-(1 kotak santan(200mls) + 1 kotak air(gunakan kotak santan)
4 cups of water-(4 cawan air)
1 tsp fenugreek-(1 sudu kecil halba)
1 tiny slice ginger-(1 hirisan halia)
1 -2 shallots sliced-(1-2 bawang merah dihirs)
4 pandan leaves-(4 daun pandan)
salt to taste-(garam secukup rasa)

Method:-
Just cook like usually cook rice. However you need to take care of them, checking if there is enough water because the coconut milk tends to turn oil and make the rice 'sandy'. If the rice is not cooked after the button pop up, try add some water and cook again. If at all failed, then try steaming the rice in the steamer till cook.-(Masak nasi seperti biasa. Tapi harus selalu tengok supaya air cukup sebab santan akan bertukar keminyak dan nasi akan menjadi berbiji. Kalau nasi belum masak, bila butang ternaik, masukkan sedikit air dan tekan lagi. Kalau tak menjadi juga, kukus nasi dalm kukusan hingga masak)
