Salam, Mr Hubby wont be around the whole of this week cause he flew to Manchester, United Kingdom, yesterday night for some courses there...since he dont really like flavoured rice like briani and 'nasi2 yang sewaktu dengan nya', I decided to try this Nasi Kebuli..
When I first heard and saw this rice in Shidah's blog, I was quite curious, cause I have never heard any history or whatever in my entire life about this rice..hehehe....even when I wanted to cook the rice this morning..my mum asked me what is nasi kebuli...so if my mum pun tak kenal, apa lagi kitakan..hehehe...frankly before I cooked this rice, I went to surf the net, to look up other nasi kebuli recipes and also wanted to know what other dishes to go along with this rice...mostly Indonesian's love this as I can see mostly Indonesians yang share the recipe in their blogs...
Nasi Kebuli some said from the middle east, some said from Betawi and some even named after the area of the Semenanjung Malaysia...Some variations that can be seen are the use of coconut milk and mixed spices like the cinnamon stick, cardamons and cloves and ghee oil...anyway I've decided on this recipe cause according to Shidah, the rice are very light and tak muak...thank you Shidah, minta izin I put up the recipe here for my future reference ya...we like it!!!
I've decided to make Dalca Sayur, some omelette to go along with this. The Dendeng was actually leftover from yesterday, so if you want to know how it taste you have to try it ..hehehe..
