Sambal Nasi Lemak


Ben picked up this ready to serve Sambal Nasi Lemak from Smart & Save to try out. We simply love spicy food and nasi lemak (rice cooked with coconut milk) is very simple to prepare.

This package costs around $2 plus and it serves 4 to 6 persons as printed on the package. All you need to do is to heat up the sauce and it’s ready to eat. This sauce is great as condiment for curry laksa and prawn noodle.

The nutritional value indicates the sodium is on the high side which I’m always on the look out. Nowadays, processed food usually has high fat and sodium that one must be aware of. It’s not only the calories that we have to watch out for.

I usually don’t serve the sambal on itself. I will cook the sambal with some caramelize onion which add sweetness and nutrition to the sambal.

The basic condiments for nasi lemak are hard boiled eggs, fried anchovies, roasted peanuts and cucumber slices. You may also serves the nasi lemak with some curry chicken or sambal prawns or squid.

I serve mine with garlic sausage and stir fried cabbage because I’m trying to clear my fridge of any perishable food as my vacation is just a few days away.
